Several Issued Raised During Phone in by Police Commissioner: Click to Know

During a phone-in programme organised by Mangalore city police on Friday, callers highlighted issues such as footpath encroachment, triple riding, helmetless riding, and the inconvenience caused by garages parking vehicles for repair on the road to both pedestrians and motorists.

A caller from Falnir reported underage children riding two-wheelers without helmets early in the morning, in and around Falnir and Attavar areas. Another caller from Katipalla reported triple riding and minors riding two-wheelers. Mangalore city police commissioner Anupam Agrawal stated that more initiatives will be undertaken to address triple and helmetless riding, as well as one-way traffic violations in the city. The commissioner promised to conduct a special drive to address these violations.

Citizens also brought to the commissioner’s attention the lack of speed breakers in the city, especially near Bhagini Samaja, Jeppu Market Road, and on the road to Car Street near the passport office. The commissioner agreed to look into the issue. Regarding complaints about the use of tinted glasses or sun films on vehicle windshields, the commissioner mentioned that drives would be conducted to penalise those violating the rule. Citizens also urged the commissioner of police to withdraw the one-way traffic rule from AB Shetty Circle– Hamilton Circle—Rao & Rao Circle in the city. Participants noted that the one-way traffic system has been causing a lot of inconvenience and accidents. In response to the demand for the withdrawal of one-way traffic, commissioner of police Anupam Agrawal stated that a meeting with officials from Mangalore City Corporation (MCC) and Mangalore Smart City Limited (MSCL) would be convened to review what best can be done.
