About a month ago tyre killers was installed at Amanora Park in Hadapsar, Pune to stop wrong side driving. Initially it received a positive response from all over the country, but after inspection the local Traffic Police has now ordered removal of the tyre killers immediately due to various reasons.
The Amanora Township had invested Rs 1.5 lakh on the tyre killers to manage the traffic near the Amanora park. However local police traffic wrote to to Amanora Township that the spikes have been put up on a public road without the permission of any government agency. It might lead to a serious accident if someone misses one of these Tyre Killers.
JD Kalaskar, police inspector, traffic, told Mirror, “The spikes are very sharp and can turn fatal if someone falls there. Especially with the school around, the risk is severe. They had not sought permission for any such installation. Even though it has been put up inside the township, the road is being used by the masses and we have to ensure their safety.”
So, while it might sound like an effective idea in the short run, the cops will have to find safer ways to stop divers from driving in the wrong direction.
