Ever since COVID-19 restrictions were lifted, the roads in Indore have become busier than ever. Considering this, the launch of the WhatsApp helpline number is being seen as a measure to improve traffic management and resolve the problems faced on a daily basis. In the last few years, many such measures have been taken by the Indore Traffic Police.
Under the Yatayat Prabandhan Mitra Yojana, many civilians have volunteered and helped in managing the traffic with more efficiency. In the past, the traffic police have also ventured out on the road in civilian clothing to catch rule violators. It has been observed that due to this, Indore drivers have become relatively compliant with the traffic rules.
Unique and creative ways opted to manage traffic
