Tippers mow down Traffic police claims
GK CITY REPORTER
Srinagar, Nov 7: Despite severe public outcry, and violation of High Court orders, the tippers not only continue to ply during daytime in the City but are yet to bear proper number plates, particularly on the rear.
From Dr Ali Jan Road in north City to Airport Road in the south, the tippers drive recklessly even during daytime. And most of such load carriers do not bear a proper number plate in the rear hinting that in case of accident they could run away scot free as has remained true several times in the past.
Though Greater Kashmir has been carrying out a sustained campaign exposing negligence on the part of those at the helm of affairs, people said they are yet to find a respite.
The Transport Department and the Traffic police have miserably failed to tame the erring tippers which ply without numbers plates. This is despite assurances from the Transport Commissioner Meraj Ahmed Kakroo who said registration of such load carriers would be cancelled while the Deputy Inspector General of Police Traffic Shafqat Watali had said strict action would be initiated against the offenders.
As with regard to the reckless movement of tippers on the Airport Road where the heavy vehicles make way on busy road via Canal Road, Greater Kashmir will soon expose how officials in the Rural wing of the Traffic Police have failed to take any action against the offenders. The officials seem to be defending the tipper movement through City areas during daytime.
While the people are scared of moving out on the roads fearing to be hit by “some unknown tipper”, violations are on surge even near the Police Headquarters which also houses the office of Director General of Police.
Despite repeated attempts the concerned could not be contacted for comments.
