Two women from Ahmedabad – Saumya Pandya Thakkar and Shakuntala Pandya – have come up with an innovative design for a Zebra Crossing that can potentially save hundreds of lives. Their version, which will now be used in intersections all over the state, is painted in such a way that makes it appear to oncoming traffic like a road block, which is expected to force drivers to slow down.


Let’s hope this doesn’t cause drivers to hit the brakes suddenly and/or cause some other accident on seeing an out-of-nowhere ‘road block’. 

Good initiative by the women though.
