In yet another initiative for better traffic management, the city police will revive the e-challan system and also launch an exclusive website within a month.
Delivering a lecture on the ‘Role of public in traffic management' organised by the Rotary Club Vijayawada here on Friday, Commissioner of Police P.S.R Anjaneyulu observed that many more initiatives were on the cards for effective traffic management, but any initiative will be successful only when the people extend their cooperation.
He pointed out that the people in Western countries were always ready to face inconvenience because of strict implementation of rules for better traffic management, but in India traffic enforcement wings would always have to cross several hurdles for implementing any new rule or take an innovative step for the benefit of the people. It was a common practice for people to use political and bureaucratic influences to escape from traffic rules.
He observed that using public transport system will ease congestion on the roads. “In Western countries, even millionaires prefer to travel by metro trains despite having luxurious cars,” he pointed out.
The Commissioner felt that concentration of entertainment hubs at one place was also contributing to traffic chaos in the city.
Mr. Anjaneyulu later interacted with the gathering and clarified some of the issues raised by them.
He promised to respond to any genuine complaint that could be brought to his notice any time about traffic and law and order. Rotary Club Vijayawada president S. Kanthilal Jain, secretary V. Leelaprasad and others were present.
