Don't Drunk And Drive

On December 30 and 31, the police want to raise the visibility of law enforcement officers at numerous crossroads throughout the city in order to accomplish this goal.

Strict Vigilance

A large number of police officers would be stationed at key places like Koregaon Park, Viman Nagar, Hinjewadi, and Balewadi High Street ahead of the festivities. Comprehensive inspections will be performed on drivers, and those detected operating vehicles while inebriated will face legal repercussions.

DCP Magar emphasized that driving while intoxicated is against the law and reaffirmed the police's dedication to averting mishaps and guaranteeing a joyful and secure celebration for all. The Pune Police's proactive stance highlights their steadfast commitment to the community's well-being and the encouragement of festive behavior that is appropriate for everybody.
