The motorcycle lane has been marked on both tracks of the road. The traffic police will catch motorcyclists driving out of their lane and issue them a challan and fine.

SAMAA TV spoke to some motorcyclists who lauded the initiative. It's for our own security, said one. Another said it is now up to motorcyclists to actually adhere to their own lane. They believe the move will help reduce the number of accidents.
