Dear Punekar,

In 2018 we had large number of *fatal accidents*

To ensure your safety during the upcoming New Year celebrations, we have planned a massive drive against Drunken Driving starting 09:00 PM on 31st December till the early hours of 1st January of the New Year.

For this year’s year end bandobast and crowd control and crime control, we will be taking help of CCTV cameras with recording capacity of 15 days and also Public Announcement (PA) systems at more than 100 places. We have large number of check points. More than 125 static/ mobile/decoy teams will conduct special drunken drive (DD)tests.Latest Breath Analyzers will be utilized. We will be video recording /photographing complete checking.

All vehicles caught in DD checks are likely to be seized/ detained on the spot.

We had a similar drive against Drunken Driving during the previous New Year celebrations. During 2018, we built up a database of about 14,000 persons indulging in Drunken Driving (which we intend to share with job agencies, current employers and family members.)

We sincerely hope you don’t figure in this year’s list. We request New Year revellers to refrain from Drunken Driving and ensure your own safety as well as the safety of all others.

Let us join hands and resolve *to reduce fatal accidents by 50*% in the New Year 2019 and also follow noise control rules

Let our New Year resolution be to make Pune a Smart and Safe City!
