NEW DELHI: To ensure smooth traffic on roads, the Delhi Police has decided to launch a campaign to guide people about traffic congestion and to
educate them about road laws.
The campaigning will be launched through SMSes, television and radio, asking people to avoid certain routes where congestion is reported.
Traffic rules and regulations will be publicised through banners, hoardings, advertisements in newspapers and televisions, among other means.
"The exercise is an attempt to provide a hassle free journey to the people on city roads," joint commissioner of police (traffic) S N Shrivastava said.
A slew of measures are also being taken to ensure smooth traffic before, during and after the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
"There will be huge traffic during the Games. Lots of people will be coming here. A sudden increase in the number of vehicles can lead to serious problems. Considering this we are planning a road-map as to how we can minimise the usage of private vehicles," he said.
Police is also encouraging people to use public transport than commuting through their own vehicle. This will also be conveyed by SMSes.
