KATHMANDU — The Metropolitan Traffic Police Division (MTPD) has recorded more than three-fold decreases in the number of traffic rule violation incidents in the capital in the past 10 days, thanks to the increase in the fine for traffic rule violators.
The MTPD said that the number of traffic rule violation incidents has decreased to an average of around 400 to 700 a day from an average of 1600 to 2300 a day recorded before May 14, the day when the government decided to increase the fine for traffic rule violators.
The MTPD deputy spokesperson Rajendra Prasad Bhatta attributed the decrease to the increment in fine for traffic rule violators.
