He said that his entire force will be on the roads to regulate traffic. “We are going back to the restrictions that were in place prior to June 19. All the 400-odd signals in the City will function from Monday,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Chennai traffic police organised a meeting with traders’ association, private transport operators, auto rickshaw drivers’ union, Koyambedu vegetable, flowers and fruit traders’ association, private water lorry owners’ association and others on Saturday.

During the meeting, Mr. Kannan said that autorickshaws can ferry two persons at a time. Cycle rickshaws too have been permitted. Cabs can also operate with three passengers.
