Bengaluru, Mar 5: Home minister Basavaraj Bommai on Friday, March 5 said that the traffic police are not supposed to ask for vehicle documents after they stop the vehicles in the middle of the road.
He was answering JD(S) MLC HM Ramesh Gowda's query during a 'question and answer hour' in the Council.
"It has come to my notice that the traffic police are stopping the vehicles in the middle of the road in instances of the traffic rules violation. Police should take precautionary measures to avoid accidents and other untoward incidents while stopping vehicles. Policies should be followed in such situations. In this regard, suitable directions have been given to the department," he said.
"Advanced technology will be used to trace traffic violations like overspeeding or incidents of signal jumping, in areas where there are no CCTV cameras," Bommai added.
There is no proposal before the government of forming the South Zone as there are East, West, and North Zones.
