Gautam Buddh Nagar: Despite the crackdown on traffic violators, the traffic police seems to have failed to rein in errand motorists. During their drive against rash and negligent driving in the city, the police took strict action against the violators including issuance of challans. But all this seems to have come to naught as traffic violation is still rampant in many parts of Noida and Greater Noida.
During a recce of some areas of the twin cities, CitySpidey noticed two-wheeler and four-wheeler routinely flouting the traffic norms with impunity. These rogue drivers indulge in rash driving, exceeding the speed limit, overtaking, driving on the wrong side oblivious of the risk to their own lives as well as that of others.
Apart from this, we have found several bikers without the mandatory helmets on while riding.
Here are a few examples our lensman has caught on camera which could help our visitors comprehend the extent of the traffic violation in the cities.
