Schools add to the chaos

Still on the subject of traffic, with the reopening of schools after summer vacations the traffic condition seems to have worsened around the Central Business District home to elite schools like Bishop Cottons and Baldwin. Most students who attend these schools get dropped off individually in chauffeur driven cars driving up peak hour traffic volumes by more than 1000 cars. Add to that usual malaises like wayward driving and haphazard parking and the story needs no further telling. Although the traffic police have appealed to the school authorities that they allow the vehicles to enter their premises and drop students off on the vast tracts of open land within, the latter are yet to show any concern about the public inconvenience they are causing.
