Hyderabad: The Hyderabad traffic police booked 137 cases in various parts of Jubilee Hills on day one of the special drive to check violations like tinted glasses and irregular number plates.

The drive was launched on 18 June.

On the first day, 63 cars were booked for tinted glasses, 21 vehicles for having fancy number plates (use of different fonts), and 53 vehicles were booked for improper/irregular number plates. An additional 37 cases were booked for other offenses such as driving without a helmet, using silencers, and more.

The special drive was conducted near Jubilee Hills check-post, Jubilee Hills Metro station, Neeru's, and Road number 45. More than 400 vehicles were inspected.

The city traffic police decided to conduct the special drive in the aftermath of the Jubilee Hills gang-rape where a minor was raped in a car with tinted glasses. The car's temporary registration number was allegedly more than a month old.

The aim of the special drive is to check violations like tinted glasses, black films on car windows, irregular registration plates, using temporary registration plates even after a month of purchase, etc. The traffic department said that these offenses have contributed not only to traffic violations but also to criminal activities.

The Hyderabad traffic police said the special drive will continue in different parts of the city.
