The Mumbai police on Tuesday 8th march announced that Driving in the wrong direction will now attract FIRs. Newly appointed police commissioner Sanjay Pandey has given instructions to his department that wrong-side driving should not be tolerated and to start recording offences of rash and negligent driving starting Monday. The offenders will have to appear before the court and their vehicles will be impounded.
The police commissioner during an interaction with the public on Facebook Live on Sunday had warned motorists that they would be in trouble if they committed the violation.
He also spoke of bike racing taking place on JJ and BKC flyovers. He also told that an enforcement drive would be initiated against racing as well and the results of action taken against all kinds of violations will be out in a week.
Activist Naraayan Kannan who runs the Twitter handle 'Roads of Mumbai' said the violation was not common in Mumbai until there was manual enforcement and Registering FIRs is a good move.
