Addressing the officials in a road safety meet held at the Collectorate on Wednesday, Praveen Kumar said that both police and transport officials should form special teams and conduct special drives to check road fatalities on December 31 night in the city.

The officials should put a check that no rider should not cross over 40 kms speed per hour while riding on two-wheelers, he said and added the officials should conduct awareness classes to students of both government and private educational institutions about the traffic safety norms.

He also instructed the GVMC and National Highway authorities’ officials to extend dividers in between Madhurawada and Boyapalem due to record number of fatalities on this stretch.
