What is interesting to note about the FB page is that most of the official replies are same as what you get in the real world, i.e. ‘we will look into this and get back to you’; though getting a reply from Delhi traffic police is in itself a big achievement for most of us.

There are a few useful notes/data that Delhi traffic police has shared, for instance, accident analysis, but beyond that we certainly hope that this is not an eyewash attempt for CWG (Common Wealth Games).
