Pokhara, June 30, 2017: After the success in Kathmandu, the ‘No Horn’ regulation is to come into effect in Pokhara starting July 16 (Shrawan 1).
Mayor of Pokhara Lekhanath Metropolitan City, Man Bahadur GC, announced the new regulation amidst a program organized in Pokhara on Friday Morning. He mentioned the initiative will yield positive results by reducing the traffic noise level. He also expressed hope the new regulation is going to work.
“To make sure that this campaign succeeds, we will aggressively disseminate our message to the public through print, broadcast and online media,” GC said.
If there are indeed fewer beeps and toots on the roads, then the campaign will be considered to be successful, he added.
While the No Horn rule is exempted for ambulances, fire engines, and police vehicles, it says other vehicles are allowed to honk only at turning points and in the case of emergency.
The regulation has been received very well in Kathmandu.
