The police should increase patrolling on the highways  to check the increasing  number of robberies. 
The court has ruled that textile traders in Erode can hire workers of their choice to load and unload goods. So, the police should provide adequate security to perform that task. 


To control traffic congestion on Perundurai road in Erode city, the district administration should take steps to construct a flyover work from Kalingarayan guest house to  Thindal as soon as possible.
