Im­ple­ment strict traf­fic rules

Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - OPINION/EDUCATION -

The city has tremen­dous load of traf­fic due to the devel­op­ment of two ma­jor ad­join­ing towns SAS Na­gar and Panchkula. The traf­fic rules are enough to con­trol but th­ese are to be im­ple­mented strictly to en­sure the fear of law in the mind of of­fend­ers. The of­fi­cer should spec­u­late be­fore tak­ing ac­tion and he should be au­tho­rised to give a warn­ing, within limit for one­time of­fence with mi­nor charges and per­form his du­ties ju­di­ciously. There is a need to es­tab­lish joint con­trol room for three ad­join­ing cities of dif­fer­ent states with com­plete data of ve­hi­cles. There is also re­quire­ment to in­tro­duce ‘chal­lan’ ticket sys­tem reg­u­larly to be pasted on wrong park­ing. The Chandigarh po­lice should is­sue guide­lines to traf­fic staff to give pref­er­ence for easy move­ment of traf­fic on roads and take im­me­di­ate ac­tion to re­move ve­hi­cles parked on road­side and in the no-park­ing area. Heavy ve­hi­cles must be banned in the city dur­ing peak hours. There should be spe­cial drive to aware the pub­lic through me­dia and or­gan­is­ing pub­lic meet­ings with po­lice of­fi­cers.
