“We have identified some black spots such as Shalteng-Parimpira and Pantha Chowk stretch where most of the 48 people have lost their lives in 2022. Once the study is concluded, we will submit a report to the Deputy Commissioner (DC) Srinagar in which Recommendations will be made on black spots,” he said.

He further stated that work such as law enforcement will be done to reduce the number of accidents, but in fact only people can drive safely and cooperate in following the rules to reduce accidents.

“A lot of accidents in Srinagar happen with two-wheelers and this may be due to overconfidence in driving skills and other related factors. Safe driving is essential to reduce the number of accidents,” he said, adding that there are no services along the detour Driveways etc., but those will be fixed soon.

If we look at the data in June and July when schools were closed, the most accidents were children who lost their lives We will take corresponding measures to reduce the number of accidents to prevent casualties,” he said – (KNO)
