Rampage drivers to fly drones

I first heard about ‘Drones’ when I witnessed their use in warfare and spying, in television news. Then in movies and recently read in news websites about its potential usage for delivering courier or online shopping items to our doorsteps. Although, a lot of arguments are ongoing about the possible misuse of drones in freight of goods by online shopping companies, some are even imagining about its possible future use in daily commuting of humans.

If drones are to be used in future for our daily commute to office, developing nations in particular will be benefitted, in my view. Why?

A hidden cause of traffic jam in Mumbai

If you are an inhabitant of the famous Indian city, Mumbai, you might have experienced the problem of getting stuck in traffic while traveling on the roads. Have you ever tried to explore the possible causes of it.

Few of the causes might be like unplanned road construction, narrow roads etc. Here we are not discussing statistics of various causes of the traffic clog rather the observation this author made while traveling on the roads of Mumbai.

This author feels that excessive number of vehicles that are parked along the road sides are an important cause of slowing of traffic in various parts of Mumbai .

Cars and scooters are found stranded all along the road sides of various roads. Sometimes I doubt are these vehicles legally allowed to be kept alongside the roads or are the people who are responsible to take action against it are reluctant.

Hope the people with legal authority to deal with these issue will someday scan these roads for these huge number of parked vehicles and take some action to decompress the suffocating traffic đŸš„ jam, atleast to some extent .
