Bengaluru: The presence of abandoned vehicles on the footpaths and roads in the city has become a huge challenge for the city traffic police, as they obstruct pedestrian and traffic movement, and they have now decided to take stern action.

Though the police have earlier made several announcements exhorting people to remove abandoned vehicles from roads and footpaths, they continue to remain there.

 

Now the city traffic police are planning to identify the owners of these abandoned vehicles and notify them. After getting notification, the owners will get a week’s time to remove the vehicles, failing which they will be seized.

A senior traffic police officer said, “The police have been trying to trace the owners of the abandoned vehicles and even informed the people living nearby to ensure that the owner removes the vehicle. But it has been taken lightly by the owners of the abandoned vehicles.”

“We will soon start tracing the owner with the help of the transport department and notify them and if the vehicle is not removed, we will seize them and try to get rid them off. It is high time the vehicles are removed from the kerb side and footpaths,” added the officer.

He also mentioned that they have already started accumulating the data of abandoned vehicles in the city and will soon be coordinating with the transport department to trace the owners and notify them. “The automobile garages have also been warned not to leave bikes on the road side or footpaths, failing which the shops will be sealed,” the officer added.

Another officer said that the abandoned vehicles are a huge menace, as they are left on the footpath. They are often moved to the roads by the BBMP, while carrying out drain work.

“This adds to the traffic congestion and we have asked the BBMP to come up with a plan to get rid of the abandoned vehicles, but they have claimed that it is not their duty. So, we are working out on a plan to ensure that no vehicle is left abandoned on the streets, roads and footpaths,” the officer said.
