So far, such violations were ignored by the Delhi Police, but after preparing for action against the ‘Crash-Guard’ or ‘Bull Bar’ (Iron Rod) in front of the car, Delhi Police will also launch an awareness campaign in this regard. Mr. Dipendra Pathak, Special Commissioner of Delhi Traffic Police said, “Such campaigns are ran from time to time. Their aim is not to punish anyone, but to make the drivers aware about the law and dangers associated with such violations.
