Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, Mar 05, 2019: Indeed the hapless ordinary citizens of the city will smile to know that in 10 days of assuming office, Mangaluru’s new city police commissioner Sandeep Patil is bringing out rules and regulations to make lives of the common citizen more secure.  The latest  is strict action against vehicles stopping on the zebra crossing at signal when the red light is on.

zebraPolice Chief  Patil stated  that it has been observing that when the red light is on at the traffic signals,  vehicle users stop their vehicles on the zebra crossing meant for the use of pedestrians thereby causing danger and inconvenience for the pedestrians. This haphazard behavior of motorists is compelling the pedestrians to cross the road in a precarious manner.  It is more affecting  the children, elderly and women.

Henceforth, vehicles stopping on Zebra crossing at signal and other points will attract fines and other action. In order to make the faded zebra crossing visible,  the police will have the zebra crossing repainted during the night at several places now.
