Over 2,360 vehicles were checked during the drive till Friday
PUNE: Action against errant autorickshaw drivers was initiated from Thursday evening, with a joint team of the Pune police and the Pune regional transport office checking more than 2,360 vehicles. The drive follows the gang-rape of a girl, in which most of the suspects are autorickshaw drivers.
“On Thursday, we checked 740 autorickshaws for documents like valid permits and driving licence, badges, among others, and issued notices to 65 drivers for plying vehicles older than 15 years, needing scrapping or re-registry. Another 125 vehicles have been impounded and a fine of over Rs2 lakh has been recovered. On Friday, action was taken against 1,237 autorickshaw drivers for traffic rule violation by the traffic department,” deputy commissioner of police (traffic) Rahul Shrirame told TOI.
Pune RTO official Ajit Shinde said their inspectors filed offences against 177 autorickshaw drivers and 25 vehicles were impounded.
“The drive focused on two areas, including the Pune railway station. Being Ganesh Chaturthi, we did not go in full force as there are many people on the roads and they will need autorickshaws to travel,” Shinde said.
Sources in the RTO office said the most common offences were related to not having proper documents. “Also, many were found without their badges and uniforms. The autorickshaw drivers should start following all the traffic regulations,” another RTO official said.
