Valley Traffic Police to Launch 'Special' Checking Targeting Festivals   

 September 20: The Kathmandu Valley Traffic Police Office, Ramshahpath has decided to launch 'special' checking at the entry points in the Kathmandu Valley in view of upcoming festivals.    
According to the office, they will focus on long-route vehicles during the campaign.

"Our efforts will be for terminating possible incidences of passengers being conned under various pretexts during festivals, and ensuring their safe travels,” said Senior Superintendent of Police Rajendra Prasad Bhatta.

According to SSP Bhatta, special security measures have been planned at Thankot, Nagdhunga, Jagati, Pharping, Balaju Bypass entry points.    
Likewise, the office has planned to conduct regular checking, and checks against drunk-driving at 35 locations in the Valley.      
Vehicles will be banned from carrying passengers more than their seating capacity and goods on hoods will also be banned. Vehicle operators are required to get the condition of their vehicles checked and repaired regularly, and passengers should be informed about security measures they should take during a long-route travel.    
Likewise, the traffic police will act against the possibility of overcharging passengers during festivals.    
Likewise, the Kathmandu Traffic Police Office and the Department of Transport Management will set up passengers help desks at 14 locations in the Kathmandu Valley.    
The Office in collaboration with the Department is to set up help desks at Nagdhunga, Kalanki, Swoyambhu, Machhaokhari, New Buspark, Chabahil, Gaushala, Koteshwor, Jagati, Saatdobato, Balkhu, Dakshinkali, Sundhara and Old Buspark.
