In India, zebra crossings should be present at major crossroads and strategic locations
In present day world expectations of empty roads or the guarantee of all at traffic signals to follow rules can be very misleading due to…
Thermoplastic eye, road studs and traffic lights should all be used in conjunction with zebra crossings to avoid pedestrian fatalities. Nowadays, it can be seen that not only do drivers misuse zebra crossings even pedestrians do the same. Many a time’s pedestrians are found crossing even though vehicles are passing. Drivers on the other hand halt their vehicles on zebra crossings making it impossible for pedestrians to cross effectively.
In order to make sure that rules and regulations are followed by drivers and pedestrians alike, cameras should be used at points where zebra crossing have been painted. The government and local traffic authorities need to inculcate the proper use of zebra crossings to one and all. This should start at an early age, preferably at school so that youngsters grow up into law abiding citizens.
