Driving wrong side is a pretty serious issue in Okhla that too since the route in Jamia Nagar was made one way, writes Kamran Hussain Farooqui.
Despite making the road one way, there are residents who have been acting in quite irresponsible way by driving the wrong way.
This has become a daily problem.
The route from Tikona Park to Okhla Head was made one-way to address the traffic congestion in the locality but it appears that the main cause to decongest road has been a failure and all due to irresponsible commuters.
It has been noticed for days that caring little about the hardship that their action would cause, some residents have been driving on wrong way.
The issue is turning into a bit problem and needs immediate attention otherwise commuting on this road would become extremely difficult with residents being stuck in traffic jam for hours.
OT.COM has been reporting the issue for years. Residents lamented that the situation gets worse when people in a rush to reach their home take short route by going the wrong way.
It was only a few months ago when the route was made one way so as to end chaos on Okhla road that has become a perennial thing.
