India is facing a severe problem of encroachment in small and also in big cities. In the cities, those areas where people are making new houses, builders dump stones, sand, bricks on the road making it narrow and prone to accidents apart from traffic jams which is a health hazard. This goes on with the connivance of the local authorities and police. Encroachment on roads makes vehicles to move slow and that time they cause more pollution compare to the vehicle moving at the speed of 40-50 kms.
My suggestion is that after removing the encroachment, the SO of the local police station should be held accountable. He should ensure that encroachment does not reoccur. more
