Pune: In a move showcasing responsible traffic monitoring, Yerawada Traffic Senior Police Inspector Shailesh Sankhe, on September 12 took strict action against motorists driving on the wrong side.

Speaking to Pune Pulse, Sankhe said, “On September 12 evening, me & 4 other traffic officials were monitoring D Mart side & Gold Adlabs Chowk. Several motorists were driving from the wrong side of the road. We have initiated action against 7 such motorists. We are going to continue this effective monitoring frequently. Motorists of any area and place must strictly avoid driving from the wrong side as, by driving from the wrong side, not only motorists break rules, but also risk their lives as well as other motorists’ lives.”

Aaditya Patil, a resident of Kalyani Nagar said, “Sankhe sir’s actions against illegal parkers are a game-changer. It’s remarkable how his efforts are transforming our neighbourhood. Walking on the footpath is no longer a risky adventure, and it’s all thanks to him.”
