Letter to Editor about traffic snarls
As a school student, I have to commute to school riding pillion in my father’s scooter. By the time I reach school, this 4-kilometer ride leaves me chocked and irritable. Due to traffic rush, the journey takes 30 minutes instead of 10. The black exhaust fumes from auto-rikshaws, cars, and buses choke my lungs, blacken my face, and rob me of all energy to study. Additionally, I have to continuously move my legs to escape being hurt by passing vehicles. Irate drivers hurl obscene abuses at one another to get past each other. The traffic police in the stands do their duty, but many do not heed them. This adds to the confusion. It seems the people of Guwahati are condemned to live with this obnoxious problem.
Through your columns, I intend to draw the attention of the senior traffic officials to this vexing problem so that the streets of Guwahati become more orderly and life in this city becomes more livable.
