Noise-free campaign in Mohali

Tribune News Service
Mohali, November 11

The local police have launched a noise-free campaign against those who use modified silencers on bikes to create nuisance in pubic places. Several bikes have been impounded and riders fined for creating noise above the permissible level in market and residential areas.

The traffic police today formed teams to carry out checks in various markets of the city to raise awareness about the menace.

As many as 60 bikes have been impounded in November and riders issued traffic slips for scaring the elderly, women and children.

SP (Traffic) Gurjot Singh said, "The offenders are putting the lives of pedestrians and commuters at risk by scaring them, which can cause road accidents. Parents of youngsters are also being counselled to check their wards from indulging in such activities."

Kharar traffic incharge Ranjodh Singh said, "A total 28 of challans were issued today. Ten bikes are of one particular make, of which six have been impounded. Soon we will call a meeting of mechanics to raise awareness among them that modifying silencers is illegal."

Officials said they would put up giant posters at important locations in and around the city to raise awareness about this menace among the people. A list of traffic offenders will be compiled at the end of the month-long campaign.
