Watch when you step out of Suncity, Gurgaon

The residents of Suncity in Sector 54, Golf Course Road, Gurgaon, are facing a tough time even exiting the gates, as traffic violators driving on the wrong side often collide with their cars.

A few residents have even met with accidents in the past week, with some suffering injuries. The service lane of the township has hundreds of cars are parked in it, resulting in heavy traffic congestion.

The RWA members met traffic officials on February 20 and requested deployment of traffic cops in the area.

Commuters visiting the Sector 54 office complex often drive on the wrong side of the road to avoid taking a U-turn another 1.5 km from there on Golf Course Road. This is what results in the chaos.

“The drivers avoid taking the U-turn a little way ahead just to save time. The residents are finding it tough to even enter and exit the township because of this,” said Kuldeep Rana, RWA president.

General secretary of the society, VMK Singh, agreed. He added, “We are facing a lot of trouble moving in and out of the gate, with our cars frequently getting into accidents with cabs.”

Residents further added that the lack of traffic cops encouraged drivers to take the wrong side, and it had become a regular practice on the stretch.

A resident, Abhay Poonia, said, “Cars are parked on the pavement. There have been cases of residents suffering minor injuries, but they go unreported. And these violators have the gall to get into arguments with residents who are driving on the right side!”

Colonel (Retd) Surinder Saini, a resident, added, “Not just cars and two-wheelers, even autorickshaws and light commercial vehicles drive on the wrong side on this stretch. The police should take action at the earliest.”

“We have spoken to the Sushant Lok police station to make sure PCR vans make rounds of the area, and that cops are deployed on the stretch as soon as possible,” assured DCP (Traffic) Balbir Singh.
