CALANGUTE: In sync with the Christmas spirit, Calangute police on Saturday adopted a unique way to educate traffic violators in the city.
Dressed as Santa Claus, police constables distributed chocolates and educated motorists and two-wheeler riders about traffic safety, drugs and cybercrime.
“We intercepted violators and educated them about their safety. We used the occasion to spread the message in our own special way,” of Calangute police inspector Dattaguru Sawant said.
While several two-wheeler riders were found wearing helmets without the mandatory ISI mark or strapping them on properly, he added that motorists were found driving without putting on their seat belts.
“We are thankful to the traffic police for educating riders and motorists in this unique manner. This is the right way to convey the message,” he said.
