IEP CHANDIGARH AUGUST 28, 2022
Taking a step towards resolving the regular traffic congestion and related problems caused on main roads outside prominent schools, the Dehradun senior superintendent of police Daleep Singh Kunwar appealed to the management of St Joseph Academy on Rajpur Road/Subhash Road to cooperate with the administration in improving the traffic condition.
According to the Traffic directorate, the school management altered the school timings and the parents of the students dropped them on time at school.
The vehicles of the parents and others coming to drop and pick up the students are being made to park properly on the school campus by the traffic police. After the school parking space becomes fully occupied, the remaining vehicles are being parked in an orderly line along the boundary wall so that other vehicle users do not face any kind of problem on the road. The traffic CO, traffic inspector and other police personnel have been deployed on the roads concerned during school timings to effectively manage the traffic on these roads.
In case of vehicle owners not cooperating or parking improperly on the road unnecessarily, the traffic police are taking action by towing and clamping. It is pertinent to mention here that Haridwar Road, Darshanlal Chowk, EC Road and various other busy roads in different parts of the city face regular traffic congestion and disorder during the times when the schools open and close for the day.
The vehicles of parents and school cabs/buses transporting the children continue to cause major traffic woes on various busy roads in the city. The St Joseph Academy is situated near the police headquarters and secretariat, making traffic jams outside the school more noticeable to the authorities.
