Deputy Commissioner, Kohima, Sachopra Vero Wednesday said drivers should be aware of their roles and responsibilities in the society and should treat their profession with utmost sincerity. DC was exhorting the zonal taxi drivers during the second day training programme held under 'year of capacity building' programme at old MLA hostel building, Kohima. He said zonal taxi drivers should be more cautious and sincere as they often traveled long distance and thereby the safety and comfort of the passengers should be taken care of with great discipline. Referring to the traffic jams in state capital, DC said drivers should contribute to easing of the traffic congestion instead of aggravating the problem. He said that in addition to the narrow roads, the traffic jams were becoming a very serious due to the indiscipline attitude of the drivers, wrong parking, and rash driving etc. He said that most drivers do not follow traffic rules, signals leading to more chaos. He therefore called upon the drivers to restrain themselves and follow necessary traffic rules and regulations which would go a long way in relieving the traffic jams. Urging the drivers to learn and benefit from the training programme, DC appealed drivers to abstain from drinking while driving. RTO, Kohima, Mezayi Tetseo in his keynote address said the lifestyle of the people had improved due to presence of vehicles. He said that transport was the biggest sector providing employment to the people, next only to agriculture and that drivers were the biggest contributors in making the nation economically strong. RTO further called upon the drivers to expand their knowledge and skills so as to provide better public service.
