Seyyed Mohammad Aghamiri, head of the civil committee of Tehran City Council, in an interview with the Hamshahri Online reporter, referring to the increase in motorcycle accidents, said: “People choose this type of transportation and use it.”
Pointing out that the special line might be one of the appropriate ways to organize, he added: These lines have several advantages; First, motorcycles will not be scattered among the cars and their injuries will be less, secondly, when they move in this special lane, they will be obliged to follow the rules and regulations, and thirdly, they will not pass on other roads like sidewalks and their speed will be reduced.
Aghamiri continued: By implementing this plan, we will calm and regularize the situation of motorcycles in the city and remove this anomaly. This will also reduce collisions, accidents and non-compliance. Last year, this proposal was given to the traffic police by the transportation commission of the city council, and this model was supposed to be implemented in several central streets of the city, but it still hasn’t happened.
The head of the construction committee of Tehran city council noted: In this proposal of the commission, we are not only referring to the whole city, but we are considering the places where the traffic of motorcycle riders is more. We suggested that a part of the speedway be allocated to motorcycle riders, which does not require raising the ground level, and we can implement it by drawing a line. In any street where there is a traffic problem, the traffic police should enter, but still the police have not taken any action in this regard.
