Thumbs up Delhi Traffic Police now on Facebook! EDIT: Now Goa too!

Hello Friends,

A fantastic initiative by Delhi Traffic Poilice.

Delhi Traffic Police have created a community on FACEBOOK and if you join this you get LIVE traffic updates from DTP on your wall.

Also, if you are stuck in any Traffic Jam you can post it DTP's wall, so that DTP as well others who have joined community are made aware of it.

I have already made this as my Homepage

Mentioned below is the link if you wish to join :

Delhi Traffic Police | Facebook

Cheers !!!

Commendable initiative, hope it extends to Chennai & most importantly to Bangalore & Hyderabad immediately. But will the commissioner or IG have time to read the posts? Or is this only for updating the traffic jams?

I don't think this is actually going to make a significant difference. I mean there's traffic updates almost every 5 mins across radio channels so updating the traffic situation on facebook/twitter about a particular stretch wouldn't make that big a difference.

Primary problem is in office hours and rarely one takes a detour during these hours so not really a big deal I'd say. As for them trying to keep up with technology

Wow, now they can totally fix all the traffic jams and catch all the traffic offenders. You lucky Delhiites, your cops are now on Facebook!

2 weeks from now, most of them will be busy playing Farmville and sending each other horses and chicken.

Assuming they're successful in figuring out how to do so.

Hahaha... Goodone !!!

On the more heavier note, I really liked this initiative, I was able to avoid a major Traffic snarl becuase of this today morning.

So cheers to that.

We know we always are unhappy about things that Government dont do, but when they do initiate, we still remain unhappy.

Nice, so one can't talk on the mobile while driving, but posting on DTP's wall is permissible.

Hmmmmm...

We only need to inform about Traffic Jams ( not speeds we are driving at ) that in-turn means that we are ourselves part of one, that in-turn means that we are stationary and not moving.

So in a stationary vehicle, in a long Traffic Jam, its quite pemissible for anybody to use mobiles

Cheers !!!

Disgusting, that's the word for the Facebook page. I raised concerns regarding rude cops who spoil the image of the entire force in a Gentlemen's manner and also took up the parking problems of Car Accessories Market in Lajpat Nagar in two separate posts but they were deleted along with few other posts whose central issues were the mismanagement of DTP.

Delhi Traffic Police on one side asks for citizen's participation and when we participate, they're unable to hear the genuine grievances of the public. It's indeed very sad that such a initiative is going down the drain and reminds of the fact 'old habits die hard'.

Doc Sahab, congrats on becoming a Distinguished BHPian. Off-topic, the best aspect of your locality are the wide roads. Will surely miss them as college comes to an end.

I'm impressed by the reply from Special CP (Traffic), Mr. Ajay Chadha. The quote you've posted is in reply to another post of my'n. I've messaged him my concerns and my previous posts which were deleted are back on the Wall.
