Government offices where the public did not visit often could be shifted away from the centre of the city, schools could be started early so that traffic burden was eased and building of new truck terminals could be considered as solutions, Mr. Ramamurthy added.


Stating that by the end of the year, all details regarding vehicle registration and driving licence would be computerised, he said. “We must also evolve a system where all traffic offences are recorded so that we can cancel driving licences if offences are committed often,” he said.
