Transport Agency finds out cause of traffic jams in Baku


September 22, Fineko/abc.az. One of the causes of traffic jams and congestion on the roads of the Azerbaijani capital, mainly during rush hours and other hours of the day, is the presence of faulty cars on the road.

In recent months, at least 2-3 such cases have been observed on streets and avenues with the main traffic load during the day.

This opinion was expressed in Baku Transport Agency’s address to drivers, ABC.AZ reports.

According to the Agency, the fact that each faulty vehicle remains on the road causes delays in the movement of other vehicles, leads to congestion.

At the same time, users of public transport suffer the most.

The situation was aggravated by the presence of such cases during strict quarantine, when the metro was not working.

"Given this, we recommend motorists to avoid driving a car that is technically in a faulty state. They must constantly monitor the technical condition of the car," the appeal says.
