Belagavi: Taking serious note of growing incidences of accidents and glaring violations of helmet and other traffic rules in Belagavi and other cities and towns in the district, Principal District and Sessions Judge R.J. Satish Singh has set a target for the police to register cases through a drive.
The judge told presspersons here on Monday that the Police Department had been advised and given a target of registering at least 22,000 cases of violations of helmet rule and other traffic rules, even as the police launched the drive during the day. He was expecting at least 15,000 cases of violation of helmet rule to be registered during the drive this month.
The judge indicated that he would convene a meeting of senior officials of the Regional Transport Office and the Police Department on enforcement of meter-based fare for autorickshaws. He would also discuss the issue of poor vehicle parking system in the city with the Commissioners of Belagavi City Corporation and Belagavi Urban Development Authority soon.
Responding to questions, Mr. Satish Singh appealed to the public to approach the District Legal Services Authority and drop their complaints in the complaint box installed at the authority’s office at the new court complex (opposite the Deputy Commissioner’s Office), as the lower courts were not empowered to take suo motu cognisance of matters concerning the public.
