D S Constructions has been asked to depute additional personnel at all entry points to the Expressway to prevent motorcyclists,tractors,tempos,trolleys and other slow-moving vehicles prohibited on the Expressway from getting on to it.
We began with the drive almost a week ago and have so far issued more 500 challans to violators. Our aim is to ensure the safety of pedestrians,motorcyclists and others,and to bring down the increasing rate of fatal accidents, Satinder Kumar,DCP (Traffic),said.
We issued around 200 challans on Friday itself, the officer said.

Sachin Sharma,Delhi-Gurgaon vice-president of Super Connectivity Ltd,said: We cannot enforce rules unless the traffic police help. It is good that the traffic police have finally decided to take remedial measures. However,they need to continue with it for at least a month to send a message across to violators. We will request the police to take up the issue of speeding as a second phase in the drive to avoid all sorts of accidents.
