Unclog Mumbai is a timely step and the results are forthcoming to help city’s traffic run smoother. Whatever steps suggested by the experts and citizen does not serve the desired purpose. Parking has become a perennial problem and the roads having number of potholes add to the woes and takes vehicle users more time to navigate only to escape from major mishaps. We throw wastes wherever we feel like and that is causing discomfiture and more use of plastic bags cause drainage block and flooding water during rainy season. Traffic snarls are seen during peak hours and the increase in number of vehicles on the road cause traffic jam and disruptions. We do not have separate cycle track so that cycles can prove handy during the busy traffic time. Unlike the US, we do not have the special cycling lanes. Also, the Indian weather does not permit use of cycles all year round as the summers are bad and rainy season has its own woes, and the winter is practically non-existent. Pooling of cars by using one car in a day for four persons can reduce the cost factor through petrol and also reduce the pollution to a great extent. The carbon footprint cause health hazards and so each and everyone should find ways and means to unclog the present situation.
