Road Safety for Chandigarh
The Chandigarh administration has decided to create a separate road-safety fund to prevent accidents.
On the pattern of other states, including Punjab, Chandigarh will divert 50% of the amount it collects from traffic violations towards the fund. The money will be used by Chandigarh Police for road-safety measures.
At present, local police are not equipped with sufficient e-surveillance systems. This fund will be also used to upgrade the existing road infrastructure.
