Delhi’s people were eagerly waiting for the second phase of Odd-Even to start. The Kejriwal government’s popular way to reduce the pollution level in the capital were accepted by the people easily in the first phase. But this it was not accepted by the people that easily. As compared to the first phase, the second phase got a hit back by the people. In the initial days of the first phase of the odd-even scheme in January, Delhi Traffic Police took it easy on violators, issuing warnings and passing on information.

“Apart from prosecuting, our priority will be to ease the flow of vehicles in the city during peak hours,” said Sharad Agarwal, Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic).
