PANAJI: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant today said that the task force which was formed to study high rate of accidents in state is already functional.
“Task force which was formed to study high rate of accidents is already working. Suggestions given by RTO to the PWD on accident prone zones will be implemented within next 2 months,” said Sawant speaking to reporters on the sidelines of government function.
He further said that SP traffic is proactively working towards mitigation of rise in accidents and that Xmas and new year our traffic plan is ready.
Sawant further said that these types of accidents are taking place due to rash and rough driving.
“Hence transport and police departments will have to act on such cases, If we don’t act on traffic rule breakers they will get involved in accidents killing people. We don’t want such things to happen,” he said.
Chief Minister said that that those who rent a car or bike, flee from the state after the accidents take place, and they also deposit incorrect Identification documents while availing service.
Sawant said that since 2014 the Goa government is creating infrastructure, which helps people to cut travel time from one place to another.
“This also results in people seen driving at full speed, but traffic rules should be followed,” he said.
