Drive against black filming of vehicles launched, 200 cases booked on day one

The city police on Sunday booked cases against owners of cars and other four-wheelers for not complying with the Supreme Court order directing removal of black films on windscreens and side windows.

A police team led by Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) A.V. Ramana checked the vehicles at the Benz Circle and imposed a penalty of Rs.100 on the owners.

Drive to continue

Police personnel booked 250 cases on the day one and removed films from 60 vehicles. The drive would continue, said officials.

Mr. Ramana said the police launched the drive and enlightened the owners on the court’s directions. On Sunday, the traffic police removed the films and booked cases, he said.

The city police had been giving wide publicity to the court’s directive by distributing pamphlets and organising special drives for the past two weeks and put November 10 as deadline for the owners to comply with the court’s directive.

Traffic Circle Inspectors, Sub-Inspectors and other staff participated in the drive.
