அபுதாபியில் சாலையின் குறுக்கே கடந்து சென்ற 50,595 பேர் மீது அபராதம் விதிப்பு!



அமீரகத்தில் பாதசாரிகள் சாலையை கடப்பதற்கு குறிப்பிட்ட இடங்களில் ஜீப்ரா கிராஸிங் என்கிற கருப்பு வெள்ளை கோடிட்ட இடங்களும் (Pedestrian crossings), சுரங்கப் பாதைகள் (Underpasses) மற்றும் நடைபாலங்கள் (Bridges) போன்ற வசதிகளும் செய்யப்பட்டுள்ளன. மேலும் பல இடங்களில் இருபுற சாலைகளின் மத்தியில் இரும்பு வேலிகளும் அமைக்கப்பட்டு பாதசாரிகள் குறுக்குவழியில் செல்வதும் தடுக்கப்பட்டிருக்கும்.

எத்தனை மாற்று வசதிகள் செய்யப்பட்டிருந்தாலும், சட்டங்கள் தடுத்தாலும் அனுமதிக்கப்படாத இடங்களில் சாலைகளின் நடுவே ஓடிக்கடப்போரும், வேலிகளின் மீது ஏறிக்குதிப்போரும் இருக்கவே செய்கின்றனர். இதுபோல் அனுமதியில்லாத பகுதிகளில் சாலையை கடப்போர் 'ஜே வாக்கர்ஸ்' (Jay Walkers) என அழைக்கப்படுகின்றனர். இப்படி அத்துமீறிச் செல்லும் ஜே வாக்கர்ஸ் பிடிக்கப்பட்டு அபராதமும் விதிக்கப்படுகின்றனர்.

கடந்த 2017 ஆம் ஆணடில் மட்டும் அபுதாபியில் 50,595 ஜே வாக்கர்கள் பிடிபட்டு தலா 400 திர்ஹம் தண்டம் செலுத்தியுள்ளனர். இப்படி முறைகேடாக சாலையை கடக்கும் போது வாகனங்களில் அடிபட்டு இறந்தோர், கை கால்களை இழந்தோர் மற்றும் காயப்பட்டோரின் கணக்குகள் தனி.

அமீரகத்தில் சாலையை அத்துமீறி கடக்கும் நபர் மீது 400 திர்ஹம் அபராதம் விதிக்கப்படும் அதேவேளை பாதசாரிகள் ஜீப்ரா கிராஸிங்குகளில் சாலையை கடக்க முக்கியத்துவம் தராத (அகராதி பிடித்த) டிரைவர்கள் மீது 500 திர்ஹம் அபராதமும், 6 கரும்புள்ளிகளும் விதிக்கப்படுகின்றன. மேலும், ஜீப்ரா கிராஸிங் மீதே வாகனத்தை நிறுத்தும் டிரைவர்கள் மீது 400 திர்ஹமும் அபராதம் விதிக்கப்படுகிறது.
