Starting on Monday, October 16, the state transport department’s Pune RTO division will examine vehicles at random all the time on the Pune to Kolhapur National Highway.
According to officials, dedicated RTO squads will now be patrolling the Satara route between Pune and Kolhapur 24/7 in an effort to stop further accidents.
According to officials, the teams would take stern action against any vehicles breaking the Motor Vehicle Act’s regulations at this time.
According to Sanjeev Bhor, a regional transport officer in Pune, “strict action will be taken against motorists who violate rules, including lane cutting, drink and drive, mobile talking, unauthorised parking, etc. by the teams on patrol.”
RTO’s special squads had previously launched a campaign to police the Pune-Mumbai-Pune Expressway (Yashwantrao Chavan Expressway) continuously for six months.
The program was effective and contributed to reducing expressway accidents. According to officials, the RTO accident teams from the RTOs in Mumbai, Panvel, Thane, Pimpri-Chinchwad, and Pune were on patrol in this area.
