The dilemma of traffic police: to penalize road traffic violations or not
The latest one was against jaywalking or a pedestrian crossing a street outside of the zebra cross. The move as traffic police claimed was in wake of the significant number of pedestrians falling victims to road accident. Latest data show that 65 per cent of the deaths in road traffic injuries involve pedestrians around the world. According to Nepal traffic police, 39 pedestrians died in road accidents in the last fiscal year 2015/16.
