Motorists facing risk at night along main road in Valpoi

GOA: Motorists have been facing hardship and risk to their lives at night along the main road in Valpoi as many stretches are in pitch darkness for almost three months now. Cattle roaming or squatting on the road has been the cause of several accidents. Two-wheeler riders are the worst hit, with many losing balance after dashing against the cattle and hitting speed-breakers.

Samir Shaikh, a resident of Valpoi, “The civic body should take the responsibility of directing the power department regularly to maintain the streetlights, or else there could be fatal accidents.” When contacted the electricity department’s assistant engineer at Valpoi, Avelino Rodriguez, he said that the power department has received complaints pertaining to non-functioning of streetlights on the main road near the Government High School. “I will act on the complaints and will look into the matter,” Rodriguez said. He, however, did not comment when asked whether streetlights were in short supply.
