KOHIMA, NOVEMBER 11: The Kohima Traffic Police has ramped up checks on use of illegal LED lights, black films and sound boosters in vehicles.
Traffic police personnel have been checking 4-wheelers and 2-wheelers frequently but the use of black films and other such additions have increased during the COVID-19 pandemic period because of which the exercise have been enhanced, DSP (Traffic) Manom Wallim told reporters.
Traffic Police and DEF Kohima personnel are checking vehicles at Police Headquarters Junction here since Monday, he said.
Use of black films in vehicles and sound booster silencers of 2-wheelers are illegal, he said. He informed that as an initial measure the personnel are removing the LED lights and black films fitted on vehicles while those with sound boosters are seized and released only after changing to normal silencers. The high sound horns are also removed, he said.
The DSP (Traffic) while cautioning that police would continue such checking requested vehicles users to desist from fitting extra LED lights in the vehicles and also avoid sound boosters in silencers.
