The Delhi Police have reported a notable surge in minor driving offences, issuing 101 challans between January and May 15, compared to just 15 during the same period in 2023. A senior police officer revealed a staggering 573 percent increase in prosecutions this year. The rise in enforcement highlights the legal ramifications of such violations.

To address the issue, traffic police have implemented strategic measures, including heightened surveillance, the deployment of additional personnel at key checkpoints, and increased patrolling in areas known for frequent traffic violations by minors.

The crackdown on minor driving is part of a comprehensive initiative to enhance road safety and reduce accidents involving young and inexperienced drivers. Police have also been conducting awareness campaigns in schools and communities to educate parents and guardians about the legal and safety implications of allowing minors to drive.
