Sullia: The pace of vehicles entering the twin districts is increasing by the year. In a span of 2 years, the transport department has registered more than 22,000 vehicles belonging to Puttur and Sullia taluk. In other words close to more than 900 vehicles have been registered every month.

Rise in registration

From 2017 to 2019, close to 1,25,712 vehicles including two-wheeler and LMV from Puttur and Sullia taluks have been registered at Puttur Regional Transport Office. In the two years, 18,628 two-wheeler and 4,123 cars have been added into the two taluks. This means that altogether 22,751 new vehicles have been added in both the divisions.

In 2017, 44,884 vehicles were registered in Puttur which rose to 50,268 in 2018 and until July 2019, the number was at a health 56,076.

Question to the city!

In the last two years, the amount of vehicle purchase has increased by 85%, informs a survey. In comparison to 2009-10, the number of vehicle users is at a medium level.

But in 2018-19, more than 87% of the houses have at least one vehicle. This statistic validates that the vehicle density in Mangaluru, Bengaluru is spreading out into rural areas as well. In this backdrop, there is a fear that the air pollution and traffic jams being faced by the people in the metros may begin to haunt taluk centers too.

Higher in youth level!

Of the vehicle purchasers, most belong to the age gap of 18-35. The purchase of two-wheeler and cars is more. The facts have been established by the statistics. It is worth noting that most of the lives due to a vehicular accident are youth. Riding without helmet and over-speeding is also the reasons for this, informs report from the police department.

Action to prevent air pollution

In order to control air pollution due to the use of vehicles, the court has passed an order limiting vehicular registration to BS4 and above. This has had a considerable effect on reducing air pollution. BS6 emission standard engines which will be introduced in the future will further cut down emissions and drastically bring down air pollution.
