It is strange, how come cows are roaming around in the roads of capital city. Due to traffic congestion, there are various restrictions for some vehicles in many roads (some vehicles that are restricted are – Chinese tractor, hand driven cargo carts, diesel auto-rickshaw, pedal driven rickshaw, big trucks, buses and so on).
But, cows are free to roam around without any restrictions.
Balkrishna Dahal took some photos to show some examples of how the cows roam around the city – unrestricted. There isn’t any statistics on how many accidents have occurred due to the presence of animal on the road. But, it should be something the authorities should be concerned about.
In the photo above, a cow is seen in the center of a road in Sukedhara Kathmandu. A couple of traffic police passed the cow and but they didn’t care about it’s presence in the center of the road.
