Paint stripes prior to penalty slap

Zebra crossings have got erased from some vital stretches like Old Court House Street, Council House Street, Govt. Place East and the Bowbazar-CR Avenue intersection. At some places, the pavements leading to the zebra crossings have been fenced. So, pedestrians are almost forced to walk on the busy carriageway, along with speeding vehicles. The authorities must apply a fresh coat of paint at the crossings and amend the other faults before slapping a fine on jaywalkers.

Silence in shreds

I often find private buses and minibuses blowing horns in front of hospitals. Though it is a punishable offence, no action is ever taken against the culprits.

Recover shelters

Most bus stand sheds across the city have been encroached upon by beggars. The structure at the Raj Bhavan stop requires immediate repairs.
