City police renews drive against tinted glass

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Jan 12 � City Police has renewed the drive against removal of tinted glass on vehicles in and around Guwahati.

During the drive conducted during the last couple of days, a number of four wheelers were stopped and tinted glass removed under the supervision of Superintendent of Police (City/Traffic).

As per the estimate of the Police, thousands of vehicles plying on the roads of Guwahati are yet to abide by the Supreme Court order which had prohibited use of black tinted glasses.

�During the winter, it is comparatively easier to detect those glasses and they don�t remain open,� a traffic police personnel deployed in Dispur area told this reporter.

Police, although, had resorted to surprise checking in certain points, it has rued non-compliance of certain section, especially those who according to the men-in-uniform are influential.

�It is an open secret that many of the so-called VIPs have not bothered to abide by the order. Not only that even vehicles belonging to other sections of the society too are not coming up voluntarily, which should have been the case ideally,� a senior Assam Police official said.

�Not just politicians, even their aides are flouting the rules at will, which is really discouraging,� he opined.

The official said that the drive would continue for the next few days.

Meanwhile, the traffic police official also stated that haphazard parking of vehicles in market areas of the city has resulted in congestion in the adjacent areas more so on the GS Road and the RG Baruah Road.

�We would now tow vehicles whenever they are found aggravating the traffic congestion in Guwahati,� he added.
