Rampant violation of traffic rules has caused a roughly 2-km-long stretch in Noida, to become an accident-prone zone. This stretch is between a nursery in Sector 91 and a circle next to Exotica Fresco Apartments in Sector 137. The past 10 days have observed two vehicular collisions here.
The frequent accidents, caused mainly due to commuters taking the wrong way and driving rashly, have caused residents of the sector to launch a Twitter campaign against the apathy of the Noida traffic police. According to them, despite the issue being brought to their notice several times, no action has been taken.
Pramod Taragi, a resident who tagged Noida traffic police on Twitter in an image of two collided vehicles, said he had been witnessing vehicle collisions every three or four days. "They responded saying the complaints had been forwarded to the concerned officers, but the problem is yet to be solved," said Taragi. "The stretch still remains unmanned. Emboldened by the absence of police in the area, commuters continue to drive recklessly."
