    This is disappointing and very annoying. The transporters are to be blamed for their traffic violations and announcing a transport jam is not the way to cope with it. Everyone knows how the wagon walas, the taxi cabs and the buses drive in this region. I think that the new Model Police is doing a decent job even though they are causing traffic jams in some cases. I believe (fingers crossed) the flow of traffic with smoothen out due to their efforts in the long run. Its a small price we have to pay for the advantage it will bring us in future.
