Rash drivers, beware! The Delhi Traffic Police (DTP) has a new weapon in its arsenal: Facebook.
Rash drivers, beware! The Delhi Traffic Police (DTP) has a new weapon in its arsenal: Facebook. In an innovative step to enhance public awareness, DTP has created its own page on the social networking site. At last count, 20,487 people ‘liked’ the page. And, many have even put up photos taken from cell phone cameras of traffic law violations, such as cars with black tinted windows, broken number plates, bike riders without helmets, etcetera. Wherever possible, the DTP has issued challans on the basis of these photos. What they didn’t expect was the number of photos of policemen themselves breaking the rules.
