TNT Desk | Shillong, March 10, 2018:
If you’re thinking Shillong roads are similar to a racing track for high-end vehicles with modified body structure, headlights and excruciating sound; then think again!
In recent times, Shillong has witnessed rather experienced a lot of vehicular nuisance caused by vehicles using high-beam headlights and loud exhausts. But lately, this ‘intolerable’ sight and noise emitted by such vehicles has indeed caught the attention of the Shillong Traffic Police who is determined to put a stop to this trend.
According to an order issued by the Superintendent of Police (Traffic) East Khasi Hills on March 7, all traffic branches in Shillong are directed to instruct all officers and personnel to control and compound vehicles and two- wheelers using LED lights, light bars mounted on top of the bumper, vehicle or any other white lights.
Furthermore, the SP has asked drivers to removed all modified exhaust or silencer pipes or modified pipe mufflers which creates a loud noise and to replace their fitments with original exhaust.
“Such vehicles, two wheelers detected are to be detained and information to be forwarded to the SP. It is expected that such vehicles and modifications are to be detected and rectified. This order comes into immediate effect,” the SP said in the order.
