As many as 209 motorists who were caught driving drunk on three or more occasions are set to lose their driving licence. By December 31, the first batch of those booked for drunk driving on three or more occasions would have their licence suspended for up to six months.
Traffic police and transport department officials are racing against time to prepare the list as the Supreme Court committee on road safety has asked the Telangana state government to submit details about action taken against drunk driving by the year end.
Of the nearly 70,000 cases booked for drunk driving in the city since 2008, the traffic police has short-listed over 2,800 persons caught at least twice for the same offence.
