Wheels Speed Up Police Patrol The police do get tired doing patrol duty, especially if they have to keep walking for hours to enforce law and order. But the Puducherry police have something to cheer about. The top brass has provided them self-balancing, two-wheeled electric scooters for patrolling along the seaside promenade. A large number of people throng the promenade, especially during holidays, making it difficult for police personnel to keep a watch on the teeming crowds on the scenic beach road. Now, the cops have four brand new scooters to drive from one end of the promenade to another. This has made their life easier, though they are still facing teething problems. At the inaugural ceremony, two women constables collided with each other while trying their hands at their prized, new contraptions.
