Traffic sense is essential not only for people driving cars and two-wheelers but also for pedestrians trying to cross from one end to the other.
Aiming to minimise chaos on Hyderabad roads and curb the problem of signal jumping, the local police has installed LED strip lights at traffic signals, reports ANI.
Speaking to ANI, Anil Kumar, Additional Commissioner of Police (ACP) Traffic, said:
We could see many commuters jumping signals in the city. To curb this, we have installed LED strip lights on the stop line at traffic junctions on pilot basis.
Claiming that there has been a significant improvement in the traffic situation just 2 days after installing the LED strips, Kumar continued:
It has been two days since the installation of these LED strip lights. We have noticed improvement even during the day time. We are also getting good feedback from the public. In the coming days we are going to extend it to other signals too.
A resident from the city posted this on Twitter:
People in Hyderabad appreciated this move by the traffic department, which will not only help control traffic but also provide a secure way for pedestrians to cross the road.
