Traffic Police fail to regulate vehicular movement: MLA
HIGHWAY TRAFFIC MESS
Ramban, July 21: Disgusted over the prevailing chaos in view of the hours long traffic jams on the Jammu-Srinagar highway MLA, Ramban, Ashok Kumar has deplored the failure of the Traffic and Police departments in regulating the vehicular traffic.
In a statement, the Congress MLA exhorted all the concerned agencies to have a better coordination among them to make the journey of the highway commuters comfortable and safe.
He has urged the government to allow only the passenger vehicles to ply on the NH1A from dawn to dusk and trucks or trolleys during night hours besides deputing enough traffic police staff on the highway.
He has also demanded the availability of cranes after every few kilometers on the NH1A especially at all vulnerable places so that if any vehicle breaks down on the highway or meets any accident it could be immediately removed from the road to avoid inconvenience, financial or career loss of a passenger because of the ensuing traffic jam.
He castigated the traffic cops for stopping any vehicle especially the trucks at any place “as per their whims and fancy for their vested and ulterior motives thus causing huge traffic jams.” He said the ARTOs must allow the minibuses and buses to stop only at the specific places on the highway.
