Speaking at the event, DGP LM Khaute underlined the need to formulate new policies on motor vehicles and traffic rules and update them with time.
However, these rules and regulations will lay useless if the public fails to follow them, he said.
Expressing concern over the frequent traffic congestion in Imphal city, he stated that the citizens should try to follow the exact rules and regulations of MV and traffic apart from driving with discipline as traffic control will not be able to solve this matter.
