Traffic violations attract a monetary fine, and frustrated that people still make the same mistakes, the Hubli traffic police have come up with something different — make people take an oath.
Traffic police, when they stop or come across traffic violators for not wearing a helmet, seat belts, or caught driving while speaking over mobile phones, they ask offenders swear they will not break rules under the ‘Oath To Riders' campaign.
Mallikarjun Baladandi, DCP (Crime and Traffic), said, "To create awareness, especially among youths, we devised this campaign which we hope will change road users."
"The campaign will continue even after the Road Safety Week which was successfully observed in the twin cities till Monday. We'll enforce traffic rules by fining errant motorists if we find them breaking rules multiple times."
Traffic police are targeting hotspots such as major roundabouts, junctions, colleges, and accident hotspots. The move has been well appreciated by citizens as violators are educated, instead of being fined.
Traffic does get to you at some point of time and if you are looking for a motorcycle that you can take on long trips, and off the road, then you could consider the Ducati Multistrada Enduro. Feast your eyes on the image gallery below.
