B R Ravikanthe Gowda, Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic), said the drive was conducted on roads where vehicle users often violated traffic rules presuming there would be no cops. 

Some of the vehicle users who had not paid the fines in the past were caught breaking the traffic rules again. The pending fine was also collected from them.
