A big news for the old aged drivers as the Government has appealed them to write ‘E’ letter on their vehicles.
Keeping the traffic conditions and increase in accidents in consideration, the old aged people driving a vehicle will now write ‘E’ letter denoting elder on their vehicle.
This sign will alert the youth while driving on the road and make them careful when around the ‘E’ signed vehicles.
Talab Tillo District Traffic Inspector (DTI) Rakesh Kumar said that the ‘E’ sign on vehicles with drivers above age 60 will avoid unnecessary honking near them.
He further said that the new rule would be beneficial to the elders as they would easily get side on the road and the Traffic Police is encouraging them to follow the new rule.
