With an aim to keep a check on encroachments and illegal parking in the city, the Kaithal police have provided a drone to the traffic police here. The drone camera has been roped in to keep an eye on traffic violators who park their vehicles in the no parking zone and will capture the visuals of people who encroach upon the land of the civic body. Besides, e-challans are also being issued to such violators.

Encroachments and illegal parking have made the city roads congested, leading to a traffic chaos in the city.

“Encroachments reduce the flow of traffic and increase jam like situation in the city. The removal of encroachments will be done with the help of the civic body authorities,” said Shashank Kumar Sawan, Superintendent of Police, Kaithal.

He said so far, one drone was sufficient to keep a vigil and said more drones would be purchased if the need arises. The SP said they were receiving complaints from various parts of the city regarding encroachments and illegal parking, due to which they had taken the step.

Sawan said it would help in keeping a vigil upon a large number of people and also reduce the burden on police personnel. Mukhtyar Singh, SHO, Traffic, said with the help of drone they had issued around 70 e-challans to the commuters who had parked their vehicles in the no parking zones. He said Chatravas Road, old bus stand road, Narwania building and Kabutar Chow were among the worst congested roads owing to encroachments and illegal parking.
