Number of vehicles in state to cross 2 crore soon

Nearly 16 lakh new vehicles joined traffic in Karnataka last year, taking the total number of vehicles to 1.9 crore, according to the statistics provided by the Regional Transport Office.

In Bengaluru, there was a 10% dip in the registration of vehicles. Only 6.44 lakh vehicles were registered in 12 RTO offices of the city by the end of December, compared to the previous year's 7.1 lakh (2016). However, each vehicle will be a load on the congested roads of the city, where traffic snarls are growing larger every day.

"The rate of increase shows that we will cross two crore within the next few months," an RTO official said.
