KUWAIT CITY, Jan 9: The traffic crisis has taken more than one turn and is expected to be more complex without a joint action plan between the General Traffic Department in the Ministry of Interior and the Ministry of Public Works, reports Al-Shahed daily. The worsening traffic problem directly affects road users — whether financially or psychologically.
Citizens are fed up with the daily traffic congestion, disruption of movement on the roads and lack of intervention on the part of traffic patrols to address the issue promptly, in addition to their annoyance over the Ministry of Public Works’ intrusion to repair potholes or cracks on roads everywhere. The situation is unbearable and the traffic patrols are not doing anything.
They turn a blind eye to buses, delivery vehicles, and taxis whose drivers cause accidents daily due to failure to comply with traffic regulations. Citizens appealed to the Ministry of Interior to quickly arrest the violators — whoever they are; and not to be lenient towards the drivers of buses and delivery vehicles that have increased remarkably.
Citizens stressed the need to hold the negligent people in the General Traffic Department and Ministry of Public Works accountable. They also called on members of the National Assembly to quickly solve the traffic and road crisis, instead of being preoccupied with trivial matters. They said: “Our representatives must hold accountable those who are negligent and those harming the citizens who incur material losses daily due to excavations on the main roads and the streets in residential areas.”
