problems in front of the KC and the LCWU." He said he had visited both the
points and found that students were the main reason for the traffic disruption.

become a routine.

school hours a large number of vans and private vehicles parked outside these
institutes effects the traffic flow." He said. "Carelessness on the part of the
students while crossing the road also creates problems for us."

to our university it will be helpful in lessening traffic jams." She said the
LCWU had no parking stands so parents parked their vehicles on the road during
school hours. Daily Times
