No stopping of vehicles for document checking, says Haryana DGP

Friday, 12 July 2019 | PNS | Chandigarh

From now onwards, commuters in Haryana need not stop their vehicles for checking of documents if they abide by traffic and road safety rules on the roads.

Haryana Director General of Police, Manoj Yadava on Thursday said that instructions have been given to all Commissioners of Police, IGP Traffic and Highways and district Superintendents of Police to stop checking for documents if a vehicle has not visibly violated any rules.

However, documents would be checked and subsequently challan may also be issued in case any driver is found to have been committed any visible traffic violation, the DGP said.

Yadava said that the past practice of flagging down the vehicles for document check would be stopped if a commuter is not visibly breaking rules.Our prime purpose for routine traffic checking is to ensure road and traffic safety as well as to educate and aware people about having a safe and secure journey. Henceforth, no unit of the district police including the traffic would conduct traffic checks solely for the purpose of ascertaining whether the driver has complete documents. Safe driving by following traffic rules would also help in preventing road accidents, he added.

He made it clear that driver’s license, vehicle registration etc would be checked by the Police for crime prevention and detection measures viz during area sealing after heinous crime as well as during night domination exercises.Recently, the Haryana Government had decided to introduce a law on the lines of Chandigarh to curb road accidents caused due to drinking and driving.Under this law, the vehicle of the person who drinks and drive could be seized. According to data available, the Police Department had last year issued about 1.66 lakh challans for without seat belt, about 2.60 lakh for without helmets, about 4,300 for use of mobile phone while driving and about 87,000 challans of drunk and drive.And recommended to cancel 1,952 driving license. Around Rs 60 crore was generated by the Police Department through challaning.
