Mangaluru: 175 vehicles seized for violating lockdown norms


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (SHP)

Mangaluru, Apr 3: Despite complete ban ordered on the movement of private vehicles on April 2 by commissioner of police Dr P S Harsha, violations by ignorant people continued on the city streets on Friday, April 3.

In a strict warning to violators not adhering to quarantine norms, the police chief warned of seizing their vehicles. But with the violations, it looked like people paid no heed to the warning and came out on the road. As many as 175 vehicles were seized across the city on Friday.

The number of vehicles impounded saw a rise as compared to the number of seized vehicles on Thursday which were 154. The commissioner had made it clear that the vehicles would not be allowed even if it was a medical emergency. If there was such a situation, the public was asked to reach out to ambulance services.

Meanwhile, the commissioner on Twitter handle clarified who would be an exception to the ban. "Bank employees on official duty will be allowed to use a private vehicle from home to office and vice versa on the production of official id cards as they have been declared as essential services. Doctors, nurses, paramedics, hospital administrators will be allowed to go in their private vehicle during their transit from home to the place of work. Media fraternity will be allowed if they have a valid pass issued by DIPR," his tweet read.

    I don't deny the intention of the police. They are sacrificing for our goodness. But then it will be appreciated if the police allow vehicles to ply on the road from 8.00 a.m. to 9.00 a.m. This will help people to visit their ailing dear ones and render some help to them like supplying food,milk, vegetables, groceries , fruits medicines etc. They may be bedridden or unable to move around. After 9.30 a.m. police can impound the vehicles and erect barricades. This one hour window will help those who are aged and unable to go to market in their own vehicles and also help children and relatives visit their ailing folks. I hope Police Commissioner and D.C. will consider this sympathetically

    Its very sad thing that the District Administration, Police Dept, incharge Minister, MP, MLA and other concerned officials do not understand the difficulties facing by the common people and the senior citizens. How can they carry home groceries and other essential things without two wheeler or auto? Is it practical? Earlier vehicles are banned after 12 noon. It was a good decision. But all of a sudden the incharge minister comes and announces banning the vehicles.People sitting in the ac rooms and passing the orders should think about the elderly people, senior citizens. Its strange that only in DK district we come a cross such orders. District administration should invite all the leaders from all the politicla parties, discuss and pass the orders and not as per the wishes of the ruling party. Instead of harrassing the common people the police should instruct them. WE are tax payers and live in a democratic country. Please discuss properly and pass a order and dont change the order every alternative days. Opposition party leaders are also deaf and dumb. They dont open their mouth. Bank employees are permitted to take thier vehicles and others are not allowed!! What is this? Please try to be practical.Be kind and be human.

    Those who have never gone personally to buy groceries,milk or vegetables and never cooked at home or stood in a queue will never understand such problem.The common man should be involved in decision making, only then things will change.Be Happy Be Healthy Be Wise.

    Seizing the vehicles is wrong...do u expect a person living in outskirts to walk to a nearest grocery three kilometres away? Passing comments are easy. God bless you all.

    This is despicable decision by Police only to harass people. I can't take my car to do shopping to the town three kms away in Moodbidri. The police is asking me to hire auto. I drive my car alone but in auto where is the social distancing? And why should I pay 200 rupee to auto when using my car will cost me 25 rupees? Daijiworld us showing empty streets, there aren't many cars on the roads. In Moodbidri there are just a handful of cars. Yet the police is banning private cars. Is the idea to impound the vehicles and then take bribes to release them? I am sure it is happening. I am surprised opposition leaders and citizens are not opposing this. The decision is inhuman.

    How can essential services be provided if the staff are not allowed to come to the warehouse or stores to distribute the foodstuff to various super markets or stores. This is ridiculous. A lot of food stuff is decaying in the warehouses, cold storage etc.,

    Since we know the reliability of ambulance service in DK, it would be good if the authorities allow private vehicles, in the case of accident, heart attack, chemotherapy, kidney dialysis and all emergency cases.

    This is not correct. Most of the bank customers live close by. Walking up to the bank or grocery store is allowed.

    What about Govt pensioners (Retd. persons) / If they wanted to go to SBI for some urgent matters etc. how they have to go there to a far off Bank situated near DC office. Some Senior citizens should be exempted from this hitch as they are not going for a jolly ride unlke others. they go for some bonafide and genuine purpose. So relax such rules to this category.

    Sir one doubt... What if someone at my home has sudden chest pain and is at risk of a heart attack. Should I wait for the ambulance to come or can I take the patient in my own car assuming I mite reach in half the possible time the ambulance might take?

    In such situations, take your car and go. If you reach a hospital, well and good. If police stops you, worst case they may impound your vehicle, but they will also transport the patient to hospital. They will not allow anyone to die in front of them. So, don't overthink about such situations.
