Ready to face monsoon test: Delhi Traffic Police
New Delhi: With its traffic signals serviced and enough personnel on the roads to ensure smooth traffic flow, the Delhi Traffic Police claims it is geared up to face the monsoon challenge.
Delhi Joint Commissioner of Police (traffic) Satyendra Garg said they had "serviced" all the traffic signals in the capital to ensure the lights do not black out with the rains.
"We have already serviced all the traffic signals. We are also closely liaising with the Delhi civic authorities to ensure that issues like water-logging due to rains are resolved at the earliest," Garg told on the sidelines of a FICCI ladies organisation (FLO) event Tuesday evening.
Asked about traffic snarls that inevitably occurred during rains, Garg said: "Even in case there is a traffic snarl due to rains, we will ensure that there are adequate traffic policemen to man the situation and ensure smooth traffic movement in the rain-hit areas."
Garg claimed that the traffic police is often the fastest to respond to rain-related incidents such as fallen trees, and has disaster management vehicles on the ready to address such issues.
He said that commuters can also get traffic-related information such as location of jams and traffic movement through traffic police`s SMS and helpline service.
