Commissionerate police launches web portal for traffic awareness

Bhubaneswar: The Commissionerate Police today launched a special web portal to sensitise the general public on road safety issues.  Inaugurating the website- www.bhubaneswarcuttacktrafficpolice.in, Commissioner of Police, YB Khurania said that the website contains comprehensive information on traffic offences, symbols, driving licenses and provisions of MV Act. “I am sure the citizens of twin city will find the web portal very informative,” Khurania said.

The website also contains information related to accidents and first aids, road safety and different enforcement gadgets besides modernisation plans of the traffic wing.

A special section on “Safe and responsible driving” in the portal provides a checklist before getting ready to drive and ways to fight traffic pollution on roads and highways.

Of late, the traffic wing of the Commissionerate has been focussing on spreading road safety awareness, introduction of latest technologies and ensuring enforcement of traffic rules.

While the introduction of body-worn camera by the traffic cops has made the everyday functioning more transparent, vehicle-interceptors and use of speed radar guns on the highways are expected to prevent speeding and loss of life and property.
