Loaded with problems

OVERLOADING OF vehicles is a major cause for concern as it not only affects those who travel in that vehicle but also poses a threat to other road users. Exactly the same happened at one of the busiest pockets near Periyar Bus Stand area the other day.

Many a time it would be either the tri-cycle or the bullock cart which caused hindrance to traffic, in Madurai famous for slow-moving vehicles. But in this case, it was a two-wheeler rider, who provided anxious moments for the fellow motorists in the busy Periyar Bus Stand area with an LPG -powered vehicle, flouting all traffic rules.

When the transport department officials and the traffic police are breaking their heads to find an amicable solution to ease the traffic congestion, such brazen acts clearly demonstrate the irresponsibility of road users.
