No tractor parking

BHOJPUR: Traffic Police has imposed ban on tractor parking from this week after it invited problems for other vehicles and pedestrians at Bhojpur bazaar areas in Bhojpur.  Sources at Temporary Traffic Police Post said the office took the decision after it became difficult for vehicles as well as people. “The narrow roads are mostly crowed and could possibly invite accidents as even school going children use the roads,” said local LD Sherpa. He added that the concerned authority had banned tractors from parking in the area after the the locals complained and requested for the same. The inhabitants have been facing problems due to haphazard tractor parking in the bazaar area, said sources. Locals at Bankroad said that they were taking initiatives to remove the vehicles from the area as the four-wheelers had made it difficult for them to cross or walk along the roads in the area.
