Vehicles on standby,long queues and rising tempers are a common sight on city roads. Every second road is a witness to long traffic snarls,which is a result of the peoples immediate urge to reach their destination,without conforming to the traffic norms. One often quoted problem is attending calls while driving,thus increasing the chances of accidents.
Amrita Kapoor,a working woman says: I come across people who drive very slowly while talking on mobile phones,which leads to slowing down of traffic and jams. While the traffic personnel do not pay attention to this,the commuters are at the receiving end.
Ramesh Sharma,a government employee says: Mobile phones have become a necessity. People do not stop their vehicle to attend calls.
Gurdeep Singh,DSP (Traffic),says: Talking on the mobile while driving is a violation of the traffic rules. We do issue challan to the violators. The traffic personnel have to streamline the traffic along with issuing challans. We will enhance our check on this violation.
