The Traffic Control Department of Nepal Police has recently implemented a plan penalising the blowing of vehicular horns in inappropriate places. This was a long overdue and welcome step. But there are various flaws in this plan--especially in its execution.
Traffic police have intensified checks after enforcing a ‘No Horn’ drive in Kathmandu Valley eight days ago. According to the Metropolitan Traffic Police Division, 2,192 riders were booked for violating traffic rules on Friday alone.
