Addressing the people at the closing of 28th National Road Safety Week, Shri Badnore expressed concern over the rise in the accidental cases in the city in which mostly the teenagers are involved because of the drunken driving and carelessly driven vehicles. He has asked the Driving License Issuing Authority to minutely check and verify the antecedents before issuing the licenses especially to the youth who were being given the licenses first time after attaining the qualifying age.
