Kathmandu being the capital of Nepal attracts a large number of people from different parts of the country. The city witnesses a wide range of social, political, and economical activities on an every day basis. The city’s population is increasing rapidly with a consequent increase in the number of vehicles; with no commensurate increase in road size. The Metropolitan Traffic Police, despite manpower crunch and surmounting constraints, has been managing the congested traffic of the city with the utmost professionalism and competence. Our challenges and priorities constitute smooth and unhindered flow of traffic, reduction of accidents and implementing local low cost traffic improvement schemes, to mitigate inconveniences to the road users.

We accord highest priority to: (A) the enforcement of traffic rules & regulations and (B) identification and implementation of area / road specific mechanisms, to enhance road safety for commuters and improve flow of traffic. Our aim is to make Traffic Police mobile and not a static point-wise duty force. Appropriate vehicles and motorcycles shall be provided and used, to patrol the streets and to chase and nab offenders, so that traffic rule violators may be effectively apprehended and punished. We aim to target on red-light jumping, foot-path parking & driving, rash and negligent driving by commercial vehicles, rash and negligent driving by private vehicles owners, etc. We are making every effort to identify and introduce modern techniques and state-of-the-art gadgetry in traffic regulations, monitoring, control and enforcement, which has always been the hallmark of Metropolitan Traffic Police. Imparting Road Safety Education to road users, specially the vulnerable ones, has been and continues to be on our high priority list. Prosecuting the errant and indiscipline road users through focused and concentrated enforcement action and improving the standard of safety on roads remains our highest priority.
