700 food delivery boys fined by traffic cops

MUMBAI: At least 700 two-wheeler riders of meals supply programs were slapped with a penalty in the closing week for flouting visitors rules like jumping signals, dashing, using on footpath and riding with out helmets. The police been sent their main points to the Regional Transport Office (RTO), asking it to cancel the licence of repeat offenders.

The visitors police, on their part, have asked app-based meals supply platforms to get such riders off their supply lists.

A week earlier than the drive started, the visitors police had met representatives of supply corporations per week ago and issued an advisory on visitors rules.

On the primary day of the drive, 174 two-wheeler riders were penalized. "Licences of repeated offenders will be cancelled and food delivery platforms have been told to get them off their delivery service," joint commissioner of police (visitors) Amitesh Kumar told NewsTread on Saturday.

The accused were penalized for illegal parking, using with out helmets, jumping signals, dashing, rash riding, riding in the no-entry zone among others. "Action was taken after repeated complaints of delivery boys riding on footpaths in a rush to deliver food parcels within the deadline," stated a visitors officer.
