A representative team of Youth Leaders of Noida had a meeting with Mr. Prabal Pratap Singh, SP traffic, Gautam Budh Nagar. Various traffic problems being faced by the city were discussed here. One of the primary points discussed was the problem of underage driving. The youth were advised to spread awareness on a local level, which they assured that they were already doing. They have met the principals of a few notable schools of Noida, including Amity International School, where the principal, Mrs. Renu Singh has assured them that no students shall be allowed to drive their own vehicles to school anymore.
Ranjan Tomar and Ankit Aggarwal notably mentioned that most of the vehicular pollution is created at traffic lights. To stop that, all light must be fitted with timers so that people feel free to switch off the ignition of their cars.
Mr Prabal Pratap Singh informed the team that the department is also facing a few problems like lack of traffic police officers and constables, not enough number of cranes etc. On the positive side, all these problems are being solved steadily. He dreams of seeing Noida as a model city for the rest of the cities to follow, and so we can expect most of our parking and other traffic issues to be resolved soon.
He stressed that as long as the citizens follow traffic rules, all other traffic problems will sort themselves out.
