I am a retired professor from Bhubaneswar who loves Puducherry and spends at least four months of every year here. I find a lot of persons driving in a reckless manner and policemen not very serious in controlling them, especially two-wheeler riders.
Government should take steps to ensure that all two-wheeler riders wear helmets and also create awareness of safe driving .

People who do not have parking lots at their residences park their four-wheelers along the road.
Now, private buses and heavy trucks are also being parked on the roadside permanently, especially near schools and hospitals.
This causes a great inconvenience to people.
Despite the presence of policemen on duty at such places, the practice continues.
The authorities should take steps to regulate private bus parking.
