    The police organized a special large-scale drive with 28 teams to monitor drunk driving. While regular checks are conducted, these special drives are held occasionally due to logistical issues. During the recent test, 191 two-wheeler drivers, 11 three-wheeler drivers, 56 four-wheeler drivers, and four heavy vehicle drivers were caught. Twelve offenders had blood alcohol concentrations exceeding the legal limit and will face court proceedings.
