Strict emission testing drives from Feb-end 8.2.2016 deccanherald.com
Intensive emission testing drives will be carried out across the City from this month-end in an effort to keep tabs on rising pollution levels. Random checks will be conducted by the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) along with the Transport department and the Traffic Police department. Speaking to Deccan Herald, KSPCB chairman Lakshman said that in the wake of rising pollution levels, the board had decided to carry out a series of emission testing drives. All types of vehicles, including buses and trucks, will be subjected to checks. Apart from vehicles, emission testing centres will be under scrutiny because there are many cases where faulty certificates have been issued to polluting vehicles, he said. "Around 42 per cent of air pollution in Bengaluru is caused by the transport sector and a checking mechanism has to be introduced to curtail this. A fine amount will be finalised for penalisers and more emission testing centres will be set up. Also, mobile emission testing vehicles will ...

Answer to traffic woes from investors' meet experiment? 8.2.2016 deccanherald.com
Cops engage pvt firm to study impact of 5-day vehicle ban Having experimented with several measures, including one-ways, to reduce traffic congestion in the City, the traffic police are now studying the impact of the recent five-day ban that was imposed on private buses and goods vehicles during the Invest Karnataka event. Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) M A Saleem told Deccan Herald that the department had engaged a private consultant to study the impact of this ban. "We are expecting a detailed report next week. This study would help us work on the future course of action, particularly to reduce traffic congestion," he said, and added that the study would also look at the extent of air pollution.

A mountain of woes 8.2.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Nature-lovers and the active cycling and running communities in the City who regularly go to Nandi Hills to train are now dismayed by the state of affairs around the area. The road beyond Kalanidhi Circle, after the Nandi Bull Statue, which is a steep climb towards the fort, is ridden with woes. Problems like bumper to bumper traffic, excessive trash and hooliganism are increasing by the day. A petition was recently started by cyclist Arvind Bhateja, which is a plea and cry to the Ministry of Tourism, Karnataka, to ban motorised vehicles from entering that stretch. The petition is currently doing rounds on social media and has garnered about 500 signatures. People are clearly saddened by the fact that despite the Hills coming under 'protected forest land', it is still being vandalised. Arvind says, "Cycling up the rough road requires a lot of effort. There is a certain rhythm that cyclists maintain as they progress since they time themselves. However, the traffic, trash and hooliganism makes it ...

People want two-wheelers to stay, but say no to VIP exemption from road curbs 8.2.2016 Deccan Herald - New Delhi
In the crowded lanes of Paharganj's main market area, shoppers stopped to catch a glimpse of a small gathering on Sunday afternoon. Over 50 chairs were lined up as the Aam Aadmi Party's second day of inviting public opinion on the odd-even scheme was scheduled to start. The crowd started coming in small numbers once the discussion started at the Jansabha. Most of them were unaware of the reason behind the gathering but waited eagerly to listen to the party representatives. As the Karol Bagh MLA Vishesh Ravi arrived, a member of the party's Paharganj Mandal started listing out the advantages of the government's first trial of odd-even from the stage. "Besides pollution and traffic, the odd-even scheme had an impact in maintaining law and order in the city. During those 15 days, very few incidents of road rage were reported. This happened as people were not irritated due to traffic woes," he said. The presence of people was thin even after the Sub-Divisional Magistrate (SDM) of the area arrived to seek ...
