Kathmandu September 10:
The District Traffic Office Tanahun has enforced ‘no horn no overtake’ rule in Damauli bazaar from Wednesday. Traffic police office came up with the concept to check the high speed of vehicles in Damauli. In-charge of Traffic Police Office Resham Ranabhat shared that the campaign was initiated for lessening road accidents, mostly occurring due to rampant overtake and unnecessary horn honking.
“We come up with the campaign as high speed of the vehicles increases risk of road accident and unnecessary horn honking causes noise”, he said, adding, “In the beginning, we will inform and make the drivers aware and bring into legal ambit for breaching the rule later”.
The Damauli chapter of Tanahun Chamber of Commerce and Industry has supported the traffic campaign. As a gesture of cooperation, the chamber has handed over four awareness raising materials to the traffic police. Damauli chapter chair Raj Kumar Shrestha said that the chapter has been extending its support to the traffic police office for traffic management in Damauli bazaar.
