Mobile court plan for traffic offenders sent to Bombay HC

Mumbai Police’s proposal for five mobile courts to intensify its clampdown on traffic offenders and punish them on the spot, has got a nod from Chief Metropolitan Magistrate, who has moved it to Chief Justice of Bombay high court for approval.

‘We are hopeful of obtaining the consent from the Chief Justice of Bombay high court soon in this regard. Once sanctioned, we can sternly enforce the traffic rules and ensure sentencing of the traffic violators on the spot,’ Deputy Police Commissioner (Traffic) Pratap Digaokar said.

The instant punishment of traffic rules violators would hopefully act as a deterrent to others, he said.
Also, in a bid to step up crackdown on drunken driving, the traffic police have decided to procure 91 sophisticated breath analysers, equipped with a camera and GPS indicator.
