Doraha, May 16

As many as three vehicles using pressure horns were challaned by Assistant Environment Engineer (AEE), Punjab Pollution Control Board (PPCB), Ludhiana, in the town on Wednesday. Inspector Sanjay Kumar and ASI Kuljit Singh accompanied the AEE during the drive against use of pressure horns in Doraha. Earlier, a number of vehicles using pressure horns were challaned during the exercise conducted by the PPCB last week.

Different types of commercial vehicles were checked at a naka put up at the Doraha-Ambala side exit. Besides challaning vehicles the AEE issued verbal warning to other owners against the use of pressure horns.

“We will not spare any driver for using pressure horn as it results in severe repercussions both for the user and listeners,” said the AEE.

“Till date, we have challaned a number of vehicles in the Payal area, which were using pressure horns. We also issued them strict warning for the future. The employees working at the first aid post in Doraha have been asked to keep a strict vigil on those, who use pressure horns and take strict action in this regard,” he added.

When contacted, the PPCB XEN, Avtar Singh, shared that vehicles would be checked on routine basis. The board would challan all such vehicles, which used pressure horns, he added.

“We have issued challans to owners of many vehicles in and around Ludhiana, which are not following prescribed norms. In future too strict action will be taken against defaulters,” he said.
