TINSUKIA, November 3: The road accident in the busy AT Road opposite the old Tinsukia Railway station on Wednesday evening where three vehicles had a collision has again raised the very question of traffic magement by Tinsukia Police on such a busy junction.
Though there was no casualty, the impact of the collision was so high that rear portion of one car was completely damaged with moderate injuries to passengers. The vehicles involved in the accident were AS 06 S 5222, AS 23 BC 0212 and a heavy sand-cement mixer AS 09 C 6351, while the driver of the heavy vehicle fled after the incident.
Though there exists a traffic point at the junction and it is just 200 metres away from the Sadar police station, the traffic personnel on duty intriguingly permit passenger buses to halt at the entry of the railway foot-bridge obstructing vehicles on either side, allegedly in close nexus with bus owners, even as that portion of NH37 is highly prone to accidents. Despite objections being raised by several quarters, including businessmen and media persons on different occasions, all complaints have fallen into deaf ears.
