Why not regulate the lorry guys who supply water in cities?There are thousands of lorries that keep supplying the drinking water to hundreds of hotels, industrial establishments, shopping malls and so on, in Chennai. The drivers of these lorries come into the city from distances as far as one hundred kilometers. They are one of the biggest nuisances for smooth traffic. The water always leaks from the lorries and the two wheeler drivers find it so difficult to negotiate the traffic when these lorry guys literally do not give them any space to move around.
The auto guys add to the confusion as well. Why not regulate these lorries? I do not know the situation in other cities. For example, I have not seen any lorry in Bangalore, where am told, the households get the Cauvery river water in addition to the ground water. However, in Chennai, most localities and even apartment owners in entire gated communities depend on these lorries.
Why not restrict these guys between 9.30PM and 11.30PM and between 4AM and 6AM, when the traffic is less? In any case, these lorry guys fill up the sump and the water is then pumped to the water tanks above. This arrangement will not cause any disturbance at all to anyone.
