Imphal, Oct 9: In its effort to make Imphal city the best and smartest destination for the people around the world, concern government department has been doing a lot. Cleaning the roads day and night, making the city a garbage free zone and beautification of the city by plantation of sapling has been witnessed in the recent days, the authority is still yet to find a solution for the road traffic till today.
In an independent survey conducted by Imphal, traffic irregularities and congestion took place at every road between 9 am to 12 pm and later between 3 pm to 6 pm on every working days. During these hours almost all roads particularly the road stretch between Moirangkhom to Nupilal Complex witness the terrible traffic with 100s of vehicle sometime stranded for hours.
This reporter, also visited 4 traffic island to take a view of how the traffic regulation are being maintain.
Around 10 am at Keishampat junction, 5/6 traffic police personnel are seen controlling the movement. A halt signed by the personnel at the middle of the Island was hardly respected by any of the drivers driving vehicles. Some vehicles which were force to stop did not respect the Zebra crossing which were kept for pedestrian. Some of the traffic police men were seen taking rest at the road side without caring the law breakers who stop their vehicles by crossing the  zebra crossing.
At  the traffic Island near western Kangla gate, one wonder why the government have spent money to draw the Zebra crossing when any of the vehicles do not rest it. Neither the traffic police said anything to the drivers.
The scene is also similar at the traffic Island in front of the Raj Bhavan. Except one traffic police personnel none of them performed their duty with seriousness. Thee one police personnel force drivers to roll back behind the zebra crossing. But others simply stop the vehicles without caring where they stop.
This one Traffic personnel need to be encouraged so that personnel of the department recognised their duty.
