Big decision, not only license will be seized for driving on alcohol. : Lucknow: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath today addressed the program at his government residence at the inauguration of Road Safety Week and on this occasion he also flagged off a bike rally. During this, he said, “The police should not aim to cut challans only.” The most deadly is driving drunk. If a person drives a vehicle after drinking alcohol, then confiscate the vehicle along with his license. The aim of the police should be to make the drivers aware, so that deaths in road accidents can be reduced in the state. These deaths will be reduced till the number of people driving on alcoholism reaches zero.
He further said, “This program is being started to make the general public aware. It cannot be successful by running a program of any department. There should be coordination of all the departments associated with it. Along with this the participation of the common man is also necessary. Asked for inclusion in the syllabus and he said, “If it will be included in the syllabus, then the children themselves will become aware of it.” This will help a lot in making people aware of traffic. “He further said that,” Transport and police should organize seminars in schools and colleges and inform children and parents about traffic rules in detail. Health department should also fulfill its responsibility. After an accident the response time is very short, we will be able to reduce the loss of life. He said that all departments are discharging their responsibilities, but a lot more remains to be done.
Extending the matter further, the Chief Minister said, “This event should be organized in detail so that the lamp of awareness can be lit up to every house and there will be reduction in public losses.” I believe that the driving license should be renewed every year. We do awareness programs on one side, while those who do not follow the rules, also show strictness against them. Big decision, not only license will be seized for driving on alcohol.
