Road Traffic Management

One of the major issues in Burma is to solve “Road traffic management system”. We need help in managing the Road Traffic control. I witnessed myself that every second pedestrians are facing the risk of hitting by cars whenever they are using the road. Traffic lights are not properly controlled; drivers are not respecting pedestrian crossing (zebra crossing) i.e. not stopping cars for the people crossing the road on the zebra lines; road-side stalls are occupying the spaces for cars and road users everywhere; not enough roads and parking spaces for increasingly increased number of cars; and above all buses and bus drivers are the worst law-breakers who behave like gangsters stopping the bus wherever they want and whenever they want.

Addition, the quality of roads are in very bad condition and pot holes are very common features of the roads in Burma. Rangoon is hosting nearly 10 millions people and daily road users are facing hours of their time lost due to heavy traffic, due to lack of proper traffic system and due to lack of respecting laws by some road users. Consequences of heavy traffic in Burma is very high. As a result, daily commuters lost their precious time as well as Burma lost millions of hours of her citizens’ productive time.

If we look at this issue from economic development perspective, it is something we got to address in urgency. But, I would like to emphasis here that controlling car import is not the solution to solve traffic problem in Burma.

Policy makers need vision, strategy and civilian participation will be the key to solve traffic problem in Burma. Public wanted to see results. They wanted to see physical change. Since they don’t see sufficient changes in road and traffic system which is directly linked to their daily lives, they don’t believe that change is on the way in Burma.
