One filed that the Traffic Police neglected is the managemnent of effective traffic control for smooth flow of vehicles in Imphal city. Many commitment has been given and many more will be heard. But there will never be a good change to the traffic system of the state particularly in Imphal.
Change of new rule in traffic management make not different for Imphal which is preparing to host the largest festival in the state. The more arrangement made, the more inconveniences will be face by the general public. The tourists who will be visiting the state of Manipur to witness the largest tourism festival under the title Sangai festival will surely laugh at the present management. Driving or walking both suffers equally if it is the street of Imphal. The comforts expected from driving a car is now a distant dream with traffic managers in the state had failed to prove their efficiency. The construction of Bir Tikendrajit Fly over and the widening of the roads seem to have no use with the authority failing to manage the situation. We do not simply blame the authority, the people too have responsibility. But it is the paid government authorities who are assigned for the job to make the traffic flow smoothly.
