A Simple Thought to Share: Reading down, having eloquently put down a few of the root causes, why the glaring self-contradiction? Does it not suggest that there is a lack of courage of conviction behind this sort of a Note, - which is invariably stumbled on, verging on a "disclaimer”!
Coming to the ‘root’ causes, no knowing why  not even an oblique reference been made to certain other more feasible angles,  such as, - at least as a temporary / interim measure, reducing the 'vehicle population' on the arterial  roads, taking readily perceivable useful clues from what even small countries e.g. Singapore has resorted to , since decades.
In a lighter vein (to recall an old joke, but not yet become stale): A farmer from  Vellore, after years of no-touch with hence virtually , for all practical purposes, a stranger to day’s Madras (Chennai !) ,  one morning landed in ‘Koyambedu’ central bus stand. Beckoned an ‘auto’ , for going to T Nagar. Abruptly but curtly told the Charge is a ‘fiver’.  The rudely shaken poor Vellore-vasi   , with no second thought, instantly hurried away, to hop into a luxury bus standing by, about to depart  for Vellore.
(Pardon! - if adjudged to be a poor story letter)
