Itanagar, July 9: The Capital District Administration carried out a drive to remove all unattended vehicles parked haphazardly along NH-415 and sector roads which are obstructing free flow of traffic.
As per the direction of the Deputy Commissioner Capital Itanagar, Shweta Nagarkoti Mehta, DTO Capital Itanagar Techi Tukap and his team conducted the drive. The DTO had previously issued a notice on June 25 last through various mediums directing vehicle owners to remove their vehicles from roads and to move them to safer locations within seven days of the notice's publication. 
Few vehicle owners responded and removed their vehicles and those who did not comply were directed to remove on the spot. However, few unattended off-road vehicles were subsequently removed, towed and seized and kept at the District Transport Office Complex Inter State Truck Terminal(ISTT) Lekhi under section 201 of CMV Act 1988, informed the DTO. 
A total of 28 vehicles were removed from the roads during the drive, out of which 4 unclaimed vehicles have been towed and seized and are currently kept at DTO office complex. The DTO has requested the vehicle owners to report to the DTO office Lekhi at the earliest to claim their vehicles; otherwise, the vehicles will be auctioned off following official procedures. The Deputy Commissioner has repeatedly appealed to residents not to park their vehicles haphazardly, as it not only obstructs traffic flow, but also pose safety hazards for drivers and pedestrians, increasing the risk of accidents and also diminishes the city's aesthetic beauty. She informed that the drive will continue in the coming days too.
