Mangalore, July 4: Students of St. Theresa’s School proposed the implementation of speed breakers and Zebra cross. The school is located near the lower Bendoor circle and according to the students they have been encountering a few traffic issues after the revision of the traffic rule.
The students were being addressed by Assistant commissioner of police (traffic) Uday M Nayak at the school, while having the conversation with them, he said, “The new traffic rule enforced on the route from Bendoor to Balmata circle is to check the vehicular density and ensure free flow of traffic on the road.”
During this session, he was also listening to the grievances raised by the students. Ayushi, one of the students said that there is a need of zebra cross and a speed breaker to help the smooth crossing of students of the school. After the one-way rule, the vehicles move at a high pace which causes inconvenience for the students in crossing the road, she said. Responding to the plea, the ACP promised that measures would be taken swiftly to troubleshoot the problem.
ACP informed the students that, every day 300 plus vehicles are being registered in the city resulting in additional traffic. The traffic has to be modified to deal with this. As of now it was an impediment for the department to bring in a new rule for the road, and it could be modified in future.
