Cooperation To Curb Road Traffic Menace - Articles Surfing
*Chandigarh has the highest per capita vehicle ownership in the country*
There was time when India as a country was associated with bad roads and high traffic jams. In the last five years sectors like bank, tourism, petroleum, road and transport have made a stupendous progress in every aspect.
Today government is more determined to connect major cities with better connectivity. In the recent news there have been proposals for the construction of express highways covering 1000km. The latest proposed in the list are Delhi-Chandigarh, Delhi-Jaipur, Delhi-Meerut, Mumbai-Vadodra. Well, a good move in all respects, but what about the local traffic in big cities. Traffic jams and chaos seem to be quite an inevitable thing these days and it seems it would never end.
News papers are always filled with incidents of extreme recklessness on the part of the driver and heavy encroachment of roads making life terrible for the passers by.
Chandigarh which has the highest per capita vehicle ownership in the country and the traffic police has to grapple with the parking problems emanating from the same. In order to give more teeth to its enforcement efforts the traffic police of Chandigarh has induced three state-of-the-art interceptor jeeps.
Campaigns are being organised to combat wrong parking , on segregation of two-wheelers from four-wheelers to optimize the utilization of parking space, on proper utilization of underground parking lots, on towing vehicles parked in an obstructive fashion and on using innovative enforcement tools like 'wrong parking sticker challans'.
After seeing a rapid growth of vehicles in Delhi it is pretty obvious that traffic management in Delhi is an onerous task and can only be achieved through public cooperation and goodwill. Several steps have been taken by the government, among them the drastic increase in number of flyovers that are top come up have greatly helped in eliminating traffic congestion in sensitive areas.
