“We have written to the transport department to notify these halt-and-go spots. We have requested them to mark these spots with road signs and lane markings so that they are clearly visible,” said additional commissioner of police (traffic) Anil Shukla.
The halt-and-go spot for Gramin Sevas will not be meant for autos and vice versa, said a police official.
Transport department has been asked to ensure that no halt-and-go should be near a DTC bus stop as it could lead to further traffic jams.
The 5,000-odd Gramin Seva vehicles have been a nuisance in the city as they had no halt-and-go spot demarcated for them. Following this, they would halt at bus stops, near Metros, and pick up and drop passengers at will. Illegally parked autos and Gramin Seva cause traffic snarls.
