Kochi faces a traffic gridlock. What should be done to ease the situation for motorists, cyclists, pedestrians, and users of public transport? The Hindu will now provide a forum periodically for readers to bring up Kochi-specific issues on this front.

These could include immediate complaints but with some wider interest and relevance, and suggestions for the longer term with a macro-view. City Police Commissioner Manoj Abraham has agreed to respond to a cross-section of the issues raised.
