The police noting the large number of drunken driving cases registered and the fatal accidents last year post the new year celebrations has also requested New Year party goers to refrain from drunken driving this year.

Nagpur Police will be conducting special drunken driving (DD) tests throughout Nagpur city from 10 pm on December 31, 2016 till 5 am on January 1, 2017. To conduct the tests, more than a hundred static, mobile or decoy police teams will be on duty. The police will also be photographing and video graphing the entire police checking. All vehicles caught in the DD checks are likely to be seized and detained on the spot.

Moreover, Nagpur Police will also be trying to link the drunken driving data to job verification, visa and passport issuance through the Aadhar card details.
