Nagaland: Kohima citizens urged to adopt carpooling

District administration, Kohima has requested all the citizens of Kohima town to adopt and practice the system of carpooling.
In an appeal letter, Deputy Commissioner (DC) Kohima Shanavas C observed that there has been an exponential increase in usage of private vehicles in and around Kohima town creating immense pressure on the existing road network and traffic management. DC also observed that due to increased traffic congestion, there was not only an increase in air pollution leading to health hazards but loss of productivity as well.
Therefore, as a step towards reducing carbon footprint and to ease traffic congestion, the district administration has appealed to all the citizens/residents of Kohima town to adopt the carpooling and participate in making Kohima a cleaner and a greener city.
If practiced diligently by all while commuting from home to school and to work place, DC said it would not only reduce the acute traffic congestion by decreasing the number of vehicles on the road but would also lead to reduction in greenhouse gas emissions thus reducing the carbon footprint.
