‘Heavy traffic, utter chaos’: Video shows massive congestion at Bengaluru's Nandi Hills, internet reacts
Nandi Hills, a popular weekend getaway, faced a massive influx of vehicles due to the holiday on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.
A video making rounds on social media shows a serpentine queue of vehicles in the route of Nandi Hills, one of the popular weekend getaways near Bengaluru. This prompted social media users to point out the “utter chaos" and lack of traffic management.
“There is utter chaos. The traffic movement should be regulated by the authorities. One must also think about the huge inconvenience faced by the locals of the region," a user on X commented.
“Why would they allow that many vehicles to go up the hills despite the heavy traffic? Should have been stopped at the base," another internet user posted.
A third X user claimed that he returned from the hills after waiting in the queue for more than an hour. “We got stuck there. This traffic jam can be easily avoided if people follow lane rules," he posted.
In a lighter vein, a social media user said this is one of the reasons why he would advise Indians to explore opportunities abroad.
Some of the commentators also urged the Karnataka government to intervene and regulate the flow of traffic at weekend getaway destinations.
High time that the government ensures last mile connectivity, privatises all public transport, brings strict rules and regulations for auto/cab drivers who refuse trips and don't go by meter and makes it mandatory for people to use public means of transport and not personal ones (sic)," one X user commented.
