RTO told to seize overloaded lorries

By Our Correspondent

KARWAR, OCT. 19. The District Road Safety Committee, which met under the presidentship of the Deputy Commissioner, Ritesh Kumar Singh, here recently, decided to take legal action against owners who operated overloaded lorries on the highways.

The committee expressed concern over the growing number of road accidents. It directed the Regional Transport Officers in Karwar, Sirsi, and Honnavar to seize at least one overloaded lorry every day and book cases against the owners.

The committee discussed the possibility of opening a trauma care centre in the district hospital. The widening of Kaiga-Karwar Road figured at the meeting.

Mr. Singh said the repair of the road should be taken up immediately. He asked the Commissioner of Karwar City Municipality provide parking space exclusively for maxi-cabs and autorickshaws on the national highway.

The Superintendent of Police, S. Rane, suggested that a breath analyser should be purchased from the Road Safety Fund to check drunken driving.
