As many as 30 cases were registered against owners of vehicles for using unauthorised siren till date this year.

A total of 1003 cases of drunk driving were booked and as many as 82,929 e-challans were issued for various traffic violations till date. Fines were levied on 66,062 motorists for helmetless riding so far this year.
