PIL in HC seeks steps to ensure smooth flow of traffic along

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

A PIL has been filed today in the High Court seeking steps to ensure smooth flow of traffic along state borders where toll collectors intercept commercial vehicles causing huge snarls.

The plea said that there was a total mismanagement in collection of toll from commercial vehicles which was causing huge problem for other vehicles.

"Toll from commercial vehicles causes huge problem for other vehicles resulting in bumper to bumper jam, wastage of precious time of thousands of persons, wastage of fuel, air pollution and noise pollution," the plea filed by advocate- petitioner said.

"The jam is caused deliberately and systematically by the toll collectors so that they could intervene in the jam and collect toll from commercial vehicles," the plea alleged.

The petitioner, in his plea, said that in Gurugram the toll collectors have been asked to use six lanes on the extreme left to collect toll but when commercial vehicles unintentionally or deliberately do not pass through the designated lanes, the toll collectors intervene resulting in chronic snarls.

The petitioner sought direction to the National Highway Authority of (NHAI) and the government to ensure smooth flow of traffic at borders.
