He said, “Sir I am the first time offender of the Drunken Driving why are you giving me such harsh punishment of standing in the sun and asking me to manage the traffic in this pollution”. The policeman replied, “I want you to have the first-hand experience of the traffic control for the first time as this was your first time” as per The NewIndian Express This was the punishment handed out by the Third Metropolitan Magistrate Court to 31 first-time drunken driving offenders in Hyderabad. Traffic police rules say you can’t have a BAC of more than 35 mg alcohol on your breath. 16,138 people were caught with BAC levels in the 30-50 mg range in Hyderabad since November 2011. If you are first, timer you might get the crash course on traffic management. We think it is a win-win situation for police and citizens, police get the part time cops to manage the traffic and offender gets a free course in traffic management and an understanding of what it likes to be a traffic police. This is a nice way of punishment and should be encouraged and implemented in other parts of the country as well.
