Manali, Dec 26: An impatient motorist who drove his Delhi-registered SUV through the snow-fed Chandra river in Himachal Pradesh’s remote Lahaul Valley, risking his life to beat the traffic jam on Christmas Day, has been identified and fined Rs 3,500, a senior police official said on Tuesday.
Asking the tourists to enjoy nature and ecology and respect the local traditions and rich cultural heritage, Superintendent of Police Mayank Chaudhry warned the tourists not to mix drinking with driving, smoke at public places, perform stunt driving and haphazard parking of vehicles that chokes traffic while holidaying in the hills.
He said the Delhi-registered SUV DL4C BB 5780, was identified through CCTV footage and a fine of Rs 3,500 imposed under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. (IANS)
