With proper planning road structure are laid down, the development authority has proper design and planning while making roads that in future Accidents can be avoided and traffic goes with the flow. U-turns were made by the development authorities to facilitate driver to change the road, and they are design at particular distance in accordance with the standard operating procedures of road making. But the problems arise when we try to break that flow and make our own turning point or crossing point.
Public made cross over are the one road crossing points that were made by public and its illegal. People just to avoid long passage and to save time they make these crossovers but in real these shortcuts may cause deadliest movement in someone life.
On Express way CDA has make special pedestrian bridge to cross the road, this was the nice act from CDA. But people are still used to cross the main 6 Lane heavy traffic road and don’t use the bridge. From one of the person our team ask why they are not using the bridge? They replied that its time taking and we have to climb the stairs that’s more energy consuming. But they ae forgetting that they are choosing the wrong way to cross over that may take their lives just to avoid some extra energy taking cross over which is totally save and made for these road crossings.
Another problem that these public made turning points do is heavy traffic jams. Try to take a U turn from wrong position cause the whole traffic to get struck. Everybody try to cross the road from its own point that result in complete mess and cause traffic jam.
How can these Public Made crossover be shut down to avoid Accidents?
These public made crossover can be shut down by introducing strict penalties on the doer. They exist because they don’t have any fear of law and penalties. They know that no fines will be imposed on them, so there is need to create a fear in their minds. Drivers that are crossing and taking U turn form unauthorized position should be imposed heavy fines. From these fines, it develops fear in the drivers and they take turns form the authorized location. People that are tries to cross the road should also be fined and there fined should be added in their electricity bills so there should be no chance of not paying the due fines. Anyone caught doing these violations take out their ID card number and put the charges in their electricity bill.
Another thing that helps in overcoming of it is traffic wardens. City Traffic police should initiate some bonus project for the wardens that on every challan they do, some percentage will be added to their salary. Through this step they will not go toward bribe and perform their duty with more energy. Also do fines to those traffic wardens whose duty area contain these illegal crossovers.
Finally, traffic police and development authority should do crack down on these public made crossover and close all of them. And put the serious heavy fines on the violators because it is the cause of increasing road accidents.
