The ongoing anti-pollution drive of Chandigarh Police has started to yield results as a large number of individuals,who were issued notices,have got their Pollution Under Control (PUC) certificates for their vehicles. The Traffic Police have no intention of letting up on the campaign and vehicles owners will continue to be issued notices.
Chandiagrh Police had started the anti-pollution drive in December. During the course of the month,Traffic Police issued 490 notices to commuters who were found driving vehicles which did not have valid PUC certificates. In the first four days of 2012,76 individuals have been issued notice for failing to produce the PUC certificate.
Speaking to Newsline,Deputy Superintendent of Police (Traffic),Vijay Kumar said,We started the drive to create more awareness about the requirement of the pollution certificates so that movement of polluting vehicles on the city roads can be checked. We want to ensure that a person has time to get a certificate made for his vehicle and a violator is only penalised if they fail to utilise the time given to them.
