Three-wheeler e-rickshaws prohibited in highway

INARUWA: The Itahari Sub-Metropolitan City has decided not to allow three-wheeler e-rickshaws to ply on the main highway.

The e-rickshaws have been banned on the main highway starting today due to the increase in road accidents in Itahari, said Hemkarna Paudel, Mayor of Itahari.

The e-rickshaws registered in Itahari Sub-Metropolitan City will only be allowed to operate within the Sub-Metropolitan City.

He said that this decision was made based on an agreement reached between the Area Police Office, Itahari, Traffic police office, Itahari Sub-Metropolitan City and the e-rickshaw operators.

According to the sub-metropolis, traffic management will be facilitated by numbering the e-rickshaws following the due process.

There are about 5000 e-rickshaws operating in Itahari and only 1,100 are said to have been registered in Itahari. RSS
