Noida: A delegation of Janshakti Seva Samiti, a group of vigilant residents, called on Rajesh S, deputy commissioner of police, (traffic), on Tuesday to draw his attention to issues of traffic violations on the city roads.
The service road below City Centre metro station remains blocked by auto-rickshaws. Drivers of these rickshaws occupy a major portion of of the road causing immense inconvenience to pedestrians.
In addition to this, drivers of private cabs park their four-wheelers on the main road below the station. This leads to frequent traffic jams on the road.

They have to drive extra miles to reach their destinations. Commuters and drivers of commercial vehicles are seen taking roads near residential pockets.
The delegation demanded installation of CCTV cameras on roads to keep a check on a traffic violation. The deputy police commissioner told them that the work falls under the jurisdiction of Noida Industrial Development Authority. They are pursuing the matter with the authority and assured that CCTV cameras will be installed on different roads soon.
