Vehicle registration rate dips in Bengaluru


Media has reported that during the last six months number of vehicles being added to the city roads has come down drastically -

Car population 10.8 per cent is more than growth of people - 3.8 per cent - traffic study

Six months ago: Each RTO - Daily 100 cars / 150 two wheelers were being registered

May 2009 : 10 cars / 50 two wheelers

Augurs well for namma Bengaluru

- Let us all pray that this trend must continue to safeguard old Bengaluru

Temporary phase, sadly

I'd desperately like to believe that it's because the city has seen sense and is moving towards sustainable transport.

However, I know it is because of the economic downturn. The moment the upturn is confirmed, we'll be back to the old equation:

                         India shining = Automobile numbers rising.

Bad Public T=More Pvt. T

Not rocket science, but now that we have an eco downturn, we should better our PT+Ped infra so when the people get money back in their pockets we can make them spend it on... umm... err... non bio degradable FMCG?
