Bhubaneswar: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Monday announced a relaxation on traffic enforcement for a period of three months. Naveen has directed enforcement agencies not to aggressively go on an overdrive, rather counsel and handhold the public to facilitate compliance with the amended provisions of the Motor Vehicle Act.
This process will continue over the next three months so that adequate time is available for the public to ensure compliance. Massive Road Safety awareness campaign will be carried to sensitise public on the new norms. Naveen has also requested all motor vehicle users to obey traffic rules and desist from dangerous driving which will endanger their own and others lives.
"The Chief Minister has expressed deep concern over the public resentment which has been reported from some parts of the State, particularly Bhubaneswar, on account of enforcement of the provisions of the recently amended MV Act," a press note issued by the CMO read.
