‘Thank you, Delhiites, for following Games lanes’September 28th, 2010 - 5:47 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Sep 28 (IANS) The Delhi traffic police Tuesday thanked the residents of the capital for their cooperation in implementing the road lanes dedicated to the movement of Commonwealth Games athletes.
“We are thankful to all the citizens for their cooperation in implementing the Games lanes. Barring very few exceptions, all the citizens are complying with the restrictions. We look forward to their continued support till Oct 16,” Ajay Chadha, special commissioner, traffic, wrote on Delhi traffic police’s Facebook account.
Chadha also hoped that the experience of reserving lanes for the Games-related traffic will lead to implementing lane discipline in general after the Oct 3-14 Games are over.
“This experiment gives us hope that we may be able to start implementing lane discipline in general after the Games,” he added.
The Delhi traffic police Monday prosecuted 100 people for straying into road lanes reserved for Commonwealth Games-related vehicles.
The lanes have been reserved for Games vehicles from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. till Oct 16.
