Traffic Police on Saturday issued a stern warning to the students found riding motorcycles without valid documents and crash helmets.
Sr. Superintendent of Police, Traffic, City Srinagar said it has been noticed that the students of different educational institutions within the limits of City Srinagar ride scooties/Motor cycles as a mode of transportation by violating various rules of M.V Act.
In a statement, he said that the heads of the schools and parents are requested not to allow the school children to drive scooties/Motor cycles without crash helmet, driving licenses and other valid documents.
