Safe Drive Save Life: State Govt to install reflectors on road dividers
To prevent accidents at night, as part of the pioneering Safe Drive Save Life programme, the State Government has decided to install reflectors on road dividers.
The work between Golpark and Dhakuria in Kolkata has already started. Senior police officers say, during night, particularly when it rains heavily, drivers often fail to spot the dividers and hit them. In areas where there are small road dividers, drivers mount them after failing to negotiate lanes.
The reflectors will be seen from more than 50 feet away, even during rainy nights. Hence the installation of the reflectors will be of great help to drivers.
The State Transport Department has left no stone unturned to reduce the number of road accidents and to train drivers to pick up proper driving skills.
