Several drivers of vehicles were questioned about the points-based penalty system by traffic police, that has begun today.
They said that awareness should be created among the drivers, by the media, police as well as voluntary organisations, over the issue.
Not all are happy, they said. The system no longer encourages paying of chalans and fines. Penalty points will be awarded for every traffic violation. Once it reaches 12, license will be cancelled. If caught driving without license, the driver will be sent to jail.
