E-Rickshaws Flout Traffic Guidelines, Endangering lives of School kids


Sachin Sharma

Tawi, June 03: In a blatant disregard for traffic regulations and the safety of school children, e-rickshaws continue to ply on the roads of Jammu despite strict guidelines issued by the traffic police. It is commonly noticed that these e-rickshaws, often overloaded with students with their heavy school bags, pose a grave risk to the lives of toddlers and kids.

“The failure of authorities to enforce punitive measures against errant e-rickshaw owners exacerbates the situation, raising concerns of a potential tragedy looming over Jammu. The dire need for proactive steps is evident, with both the traffic police and department urged to intervene immediately”, said an activist of a parent body of School going children, Amit Kapoor.

In the midst of the summer vacation period, it is imperative that stringent directives are issued to both schools and e-rickshaw owners. These directives must emphasize adherence to traffic guidelines and ensure the safety of students during their commute to and from school.

“The looming threat of a major tragedy underscores the urgency for swift action. Authorities must collaborate to enforce regulations effectively, directing schools to strictly adhere to transportation guidelines. Only through concerted efforts can the safety of school children be safeguarded on the roads of Jammu and ,” a concerned parent Sham Lal Gupta said.
