Lucknow: The screams of the people injured in the Barabanki accident of Uttar Pradesh raise questions before the officials trying to improve the traffic system. Four major road accidents in a short span of two days in the capital and adjoining Barabanki took away the lives of seven people. All these accidents occurred due to overspeeding or driving on the wrong side. Due to lack of strict action on the spot in such cases, accidents are happening continuously. The traffic police is issuing only e-challan in such cases. Recently work was on to register FIRs against those repeatedly overspeeding, but this process has also been stopped for the last two months.
