PANAJI: The Goa Consumer Action Network (GoaCan) along with the Goa police traffic cell held a meeting with the Corporation of the City of Panaji (CCP) to discuss issues related to road safety and resolve them.
They also proposed observing of the UN global road safety week in September and the world day of remembrance of road traffic victims in November.
GoaCan has discussed modifications to the entrance of the Kadamba bus terminus in Panaji, modifications at the interface of bus transport and ferry landings at the jetties, besides the collection of five years’ data on hit-and-run cases, drunk driving and other traffic violations.
They also raised the issue of illegal hawking and commercial activities on pavements meant for pedestrians. “We also need to culture of responsibility on the consumer to use pavements. If CCP leads by example, other municipalities will follow suit,” GoaCan convenor, Roland Martins said.
