Drunk and Drive Cases are on Rising in Hyderabad during Election Campaigning
With a rise in election campaigning, many people in the city are drowning in alcohol and found driving vehicles being drunk. The drastic increase in the drunk and drive cases in both Hyderabad and Cyberabad Commissionerates are the evidence of this current situation in the city. In November 2018, within two commissionerates, around 4165 motorists were caught in drunk and drive cases. Earlier in October 2018, only 1,426 people were caught in drunk and drive in Hyderabad and 1,035 motorists were caught in Cyberabad. If we examine the statistics of the cases registered in the Cyberabad Commissionerate in November 2018, most of the drunk and drive cases were registered in Kukatpally and Madhapur areas. Based on the level of liquor taken by them, few motorists license were canceled and charge sheets were filed on a few others and were sent to jail. In the Hyderabad Commissionerate, 16 driving licenses were permanently canceled, as there was no change in the motorists who were even caught earlier. Among these motorists who were caught, 12 motorists license were canceled for 5 years, 4 years of license cancellation for 5 motorists, 3 years for 33 members, 2 years for 20 members, just 1 year for 32 members and 6 months for 6 people. Unfortunately, young men are more susceptible and are getting caught in drunk and drive cases. Despite of police taking so many measures to prevent Drunk and Drive cases, motorists are still driving their vehicles under the influence of alcohol and increasing their risk of crash accidents.
Make sure you do not drink when you have to drive. This one decision of yours can save you, your family and others on road.
