Heavy early morning traffic jam was noticed on Abul Fazal-Kalindi Kunj road, according to parents who had gone to drop their children. Many parents lamented that buses reached school late due to the jam. For a few minutes the reason behind the jam was not known.
The jam further compounded as people started driving wrong sides to reach office or home early, said an eyewitness. “It was a chaos. Usually early morning hours use to be quiet in Okhla as only school buses ply on roads. But today it was different with children getting struck in jams for long time. The main reason behind the jam was a bus developing snag,” said a parent, who requested not to be named.
Traffic jam has become a major issue in the locality with residents spending long hours in jam even during non-rush hours. Most of time it has been notice that the jams are manmade as many residents in a hurry to reach home or their destinations don’t care about driving in proper lane. Also, the absence of traffic police in the locality to man the streets has further complicated the issue with commuters g traffic laws least bothered about being penalized, claimed a resident.
