But in Jammu traffic police cops care little about managing/regulating traffic and focus more on issuing challans and booking violators in order to increase the revenue receipts. The traffic police cops do not make any distinction between peak hour traffic  or routine traffic when it comes to booking violators. On Monday at least 8 traffic police cops were seen standing near the Gujjar Nagar  barricade waiting for the two wheeler drivers and other violators to fall in the trap. Ironically, the manner in which the traffic police cops were catching hold of traffic violators  they added to the miseries of the motorists driving on the …

Mr CM Have you ever tried Boarding an AutoRickshaw in Jammu, Try at least Once

‘METERED AUTOS NOT IN FASHION HERE’   If Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, any one of his cabinet colleague or even the senior most functionary of the Transport department would ever get an opportunity to board an auto rickshaw from railway station,bus station or any other location chances are that auto rickshaw driver would rob them of their fortune by charging hefty amount.
