Bhubaneswar: Think twice before going full-throttle on high-speed motor bikes next time you hit the road as Commissionerate Police has now decided to act tough on such rash drivers.

Sending a clear message, Police Commissioner YB Khurania said that such 'over-speeding' motorists would be dealt with strictly as per law.

The move is likely to play a crucial role in putting a check on incidents of road mishaps caused particularly by rash, negligent driving by motorists especially youngsters.

"The traffic wing has been directed to identify such drivers and note down their vehicle registration numbers so that necessary action can be taken against them," said Khurania.

Senior officials said that ‘penalty challans’ will be sent to the violators who will be asked to pay a particular fine for indulging in rash and negligent driving and for overspeeding.

Besides, advanced CCTV cameras that are being installed at prominent traffic junctions and speed detectors under the Smart City Scheme can also be pressed into service to curb such menace on city roads.

"RTOs of respective regions can also take steps for cancellation of driving licenses of the habitual offenders," Khurania added.
