Traffic jam is nothing new in Okhla as residents battle it every day. But what turned out to be something new was a video by RJ Naved carrying a message for Okhla residents on gridlock. In a less than 2-minute meaningful video, RJ Naved, who is resident of Okhla, makes an appeal to the residents how to get the issue resolved.
He narrates an incident that how in the traffic jam he saw a woman stuck in the jam and crying as she had to visit hospital. Traffic jam and haphazard driving and parking are two big issues among many in the locality. Residents lamented that illegal car parking on the road is the norm these days.
And those regular commuters at times find it extremely difficult to reach their destination on time. What is surprising is the mushrooming of workshop on roadsides. The situation for many is such that driving has turned out to be a nightmare on Okhla road with traffic jam becoming a daily affair. And in most the cases it has been found that traffic jam is result of haphazard parking or driving in the wrong lane. It is usual to see bikers and car drivers taking the wrong lane so that they could reach their destination early unaware of the fact that how their irresponsible actions lead to trouble for others.
A resident on the condition of anonymity said how a few days ago a man was driving in the wrong lane so that to get into Ghaffar Manzil and when objected to it, he argued said there was nothing wrong.
