In response to the report titled “Timer-less traffic signals cause frequent jams at City junctions” that was published in Rising Kashmir on Tuesday. In Srinagar city the traffic signals at many intersections malfunction whenever there is rainfall. In the next few weeks when there are chances of rains, don’t expect these signals to work properly. Sometimes authorities themselves change the signal to yellow and then manually direct the traffic. But sadly, there are not enough cops to direct the traffic at the affected beats. At crossroads and intersections where traffic comes from four different directions, one or two cops are not able to handle the traffic as many drivers simply ignore them. The lights should be working properly and traffic authorities must impose on-spot chalan on all those who violate the rules, especially those jumping the signal.
