Make PMP BRT Routes, Bus stops safer, Save lives. Initiate Citizen encouragement program

Hon Mayor,Hon CP,Hon Pmpm CMD,

Dear Madam/Sirs,

BRT is proving Death Trap.PMC may need to refund Rs 800 cr, Police has no man power, Citizens should observe traffic discpline etc under these pretexts the safety of Punekars is thouroughly compromised. They have become orphans.

Police,Pmc has been penalising Vehicles on Footpaths/Cycle Tracks Rs 1000/ 1500/ 2500 /5000.

On same lines the violators in BRT Track & Bus Stops be penalised.

The Commuters /Citizens' participation can prove to be quite effective , if the scheme is announced and citizens appealed to send photographs of vehicles violating to declared & dedicated email address at Police & Pmc.

Heavy fines be recovered from violating vehicle owners & Rs 100 be rewarded to citizens sending photos of violators out of fines recovered.

Pmp has successfully implementing Citizen Reward scheme since 2008 for Buses on Zebra, Buses without Destn Boards & Driver talking on mobile while driving.

If Admin neither makes effective safety arrangements nor involves citizens, keep Punekars under life threat for ever; creates suspicion about objectives of such high budget but threat to public projects.
Citizens will certainly teach them lesson , may today or tomorrow.

A note in Marathi is attached.

Awaiting positive response,
