Check rampant traffic violations

Sir, It is not clear how to consider the news of city Traffic Police collecting Rs.7.13 lakh as fine from violators in just three days (Star of Mysore dated Mar. 5), that too only in certain areas of the city. Whether it is efficiency of the Traffic Cops to have rigorous checks or the inability…
