In a letter to the State Transport Commissioner and the State Police Chief, K.R. Jyothilal, Principal Secretary, Transport, asked Kerala to comply with the Supreme Court’s direction.

The head of Kerala’s two law enforcing agencies were thus directed to ‘strictly check’ violations using the enforcement team of the Motor Vehicles Department and the police.
