SRINAGAR: The Assistant Regional Transport Officer (ARTO) of Baramulla on Friday blacklisted at least 40 vehicles and suspended seven driving licenses in the Sopore area of north Kashmir. Fifteen violators were also issued show-cause notices.
Quoting an official from the transport department, KNO reported that an enforcement drive led by ARTO Muazzam Ali was conducted in Sopore, where at least 40 vehicles were blacklisted for having expired documents.
During the drive, seven driving licenses were suspended, and 15 violators were served show-cause notices for violating transport rules and regulations.
“People have been resorting to traffic violations, which are unacceptable. These drives should serve as an eye-opener to refrain from violations,” the official said.
The ARTO Baramulla counselled the violators, warned them of strict action, and urged them to follow the rules and regulations set by the Motor Vehicle Act.
“We will be tough against traffic violators; there’s no space for violations. People must know their duties, and traffic norms and road safety must be observed in letter and spirit, he said.
