This is a puzzle to which even city's traffic police have no answer. The over-crowded Thippasandra Road connecting the 80-feet road in Indiranagar and Suranjandas Road (near BEML Gate) was made a one-way. But, ever since the one-way rule came into force many years back, it has added to the traffic chaos as the motorists are often seen breaking the rule at will.
According to the residents, the congestion on the road increases during peak hours owing to motorists breaking the one-way rule. "There are a number of roads that are joining on to Thippasandra Road from both sides. Near the Ganesha temple, one can spot most motorists violating the one-way rule regularly. Even traffic police are seen riding on the opposite side," says Mohan Kumar, a resident of HAL 3rd Stage.
Another resident said that the presence of the Thippasandra market on the road makes the traffic extremely slow. "The traffic police should look into the issue and find a solution at the earliest. You will go mad driving on this road,"says Bhuvanesh Chand-rashekar, a businessman.
Speaking to City Express, Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) M A Saleem said that the Thippasandra Road was amongst the first to be made a one-way in 2003.
"We will make patrolling on the road intense and take strict action against offenders," Saleem said.
