This move is part of a broader campaign to ensure road safety and adherence to traffic laws, the police said in light of several incidents involving minors in Noida, Greater Noida and other parts of the country.

In an official statement released on Tuesday evening, the Noida Police emphasised that it is both inappropriate and illegal for minors to drive any vehicle.

"No parent should allow their underage children to drive two-wheelers or four-wheelers under any circumstances," the statement said.

The traffic police of the Gautam Buddh Nagar Commissionerate are committed to ensuring public safety and have urged parents to prevent their underage children from operating motor vehicles.

The police have reiterated that students under 18 years of age are strictly prohibited from driving without a valid license.

"Parents and guardians are being cautioned not to allow their children to use two-wheelers or four-wheelers. The traffic police will be conducting rigorous checks as part of this enforcement campaign. Any violations detected will be met with strict action under Section 199A of the Motor Vehicles Act," the police said.

The Noida Police's campaign aims to ensure that road safety regulations are upheld and that the risks associated with underage driving are mitigated.

"The public is urged to comply with these regulations to avoid severe penalties," it added.
