The Bengaluru Traffic Police have installed a Pedestrian-controlled traffic signals or pelican crossings at the entrance of Kudremukh Colony so that the residents can easily cross the Sarjapur Main Road.
The signal, which allows pedestrians to cross a road, requires people to press a button and wait for a few minutes for the light to turn red and stop oncoming traffic.
A buzzer also activates making the motorists to stop. Thanks to the traffic police, the cries of the residents has been heard at last.
“The people are unable to notice the new system due to the display boards that has been installed are facing the other side of the road. Or else it is better if double boards are put up,” say the residents.
As this novel idea has been a great success world over, the traffic police had installed 52 pelican crossings across the city in 2005.
But miscreants had destroyed the switches that activate pelican crossings. So the police switched over to automatic system five years later.
Now only a few are in operational. Among them Kudremukh Colony pelican signal is added to the list. The signal lights are powered by solar.
