Mumbai Police Sets Up ‘Green Corridor’ for Vehicles with Red Stickers


Mumbai Police Sets Up ‘Green Corridor’ for Vehicles with Red Stickers
SHARES

Mumbai Police officials have established a “green corridor” at all key toll plazas and checkpoints to allow the smooth movement of vehicles, particularly those belonging to medical services with red stickers.  

Officials announced on Saturday that emergency and essential services vehicles will need to have colour-coded stickers to make them easier to identify. This would also allow officials to avert traffic jams on the city’s crucial roadways during the coronavirus restrictions.

As per the new rules, vehicles belonging to doctors, medical staff, people supplying medical equipment, testing kits, as well as ambulances will have to bear a red sticker whereas essential service providers including food, fruits, dairy, and other essentials will have to use a green sticker on their vehicles for identification. 

The aforementioned green corridor is an extension of this, allowing those with red stickers to move more freely within the city. An official said that all red sticker bearing vehicles are allowed to pass through dedicated lanes.

Mumbai Police also had to dispel rumours of petrol pumps only allowing vehicles with green or red stickers (also known as Essential Stickers) for refuelling. Officials said that no such instruction has been provided adding that this was false information. 

“Fake Message Alert. A message about police instructing petrol pumps to give fuel only to cars with #EssentialStickers is false. However, our appeal to Mumbaikars to not move out unless it’s for essentials or an emergency is genuine & heartfelt,” the official Mumbai Police handle tweeted.
