The violators were also made aware of traffic rules.
“We encourage people to use car pools, as it will bring down congestion in the city and also help reduce vehicular pollution,” Singh added.
Rakesh Singh, a commuter, said “Car pooling is a good way to reduce traffic and I, too, have tried it with my friends. But since our job timings didn’t match, we had to drop the idea.”
