TIME TO FIX ACCOUNTABILITY FOR INCREASED ROAD ACCIDENTS & TRAFFIC SNARL IN DELHI

  New Delhi: Traffic has emerged as one of the most critical issue for Delhiites in last decade. As per the statistics, there are around 2-3 lakhs cars rolls out on the roads of Delhi due to which the congestion on roads is also shooting up. But the reason for the traffic snarl is not only the growing numbers of vehicles on the road, there are several other factors which are playing an instrumental role in exaggerating this problem and that is Traffic mismanagement happening due to the negligence of Delhi’s Government and Delhi’s Traffic police.

Our team had gone in many places in Delhi to take an idea about the actions being taken by the Delhi government and Delhi Traffic police but our report is very disappointing and we also found numerous causes which leads to most of the accidents in Delhi.

Key points from our Report says,

  • If a Traffic signal stops working then nobody takes cognizance of that and leave it in the stopped state for many weeks.
  • Sometimes the high lights pillars are fixed just in front of the Traffic signals which leads to a confusion for the drivers rather than navigating them in a proper manner.
  • Despite High Court’s order, the MCD’s truck carries the garbage without covering it due to which the garbage gets scattered on the road due to which many 2 wheeler riders met with an accident.
  • At night, Many trucks carries the long iron bars without putting any tail light at the end of those bars due to which we have seen many accidents.
  • Over loaded Trucks can be seen through out Delhi which are entirely banned by the Courts of law but Delhi Traffic Police seems to pretend as ignorant with this issues.
  • Vehicles emitting hazardous smoke can be seen easily but no action is being taken by the Traffic police.

Now the time has come to fix the accountability and responsibility between the Delhi’s Government and Delhi Traffic police so that the road accidents can be slashed down by adopting the appropriate measures.

Delhiites have come out to remove the grey area in the traffic management to make our Delhi clean and green.
