Demolition drive will be carried out by Nagpur Municipal Corporation on 30th March 2012. The encroachments on foot paths and illegal extensions on roads will be removed, illegal shops will also be demolished. It is a D-day for encroachers and a good news for pedestrians as the footpaths will be cleared and more space will be available for walking . This will also control Jaywalking and hence less accidents. After cases of accidents caused by Jaywalking finally NMC has woke up to clear foot paths for pedestrians.
Many Nagpurians lose their life due to jaywalking or walking recklessly on the street. They collide with vehicle or become a cause of accident. Jaywalking is a punishable offence and jaywalkers can be fined for crossing roads from anywhere according to their whims.
