Indore: Though the RLVD cameras have installed at 15th SAF Battalion trisection to detect traffic norm violators, the stop lines and zebra crossings are not visible. The commuters cannot see the faded stop lines and often cross them. As a result, e-challans are issued against them.
There is another problem. The people visiting petrol pump located at the trisection often drive on wrong side putting their own safety at stake. Several police officials cross this area but they have not shown interest in it. Kapil Shakalya, a working professional, said his friend was fined at the 15th Battalion trisection for red light violation. He added that his friend got confused about where to stop his vehicle because the stop line was not visible at the traffic signal.
Nikhil Agrawal, a student, said the stop lines and zebra crossings are not visible at this trisection. The driver instead of keeping an eye on the road has to focus on the faded stop lines and zebra crossings, which may lead to accidents. “The civic authorities should repaint stop lines to avoid this trouble,” he said.
Dr Pravee Jain said his uncle who lives in the area often crosses the trisection. The road from Marimata Road to Aerodrome Road does not have stop lines. Pranav Joshi said he was travelling with his elderly uncle on a two-wheeler who faced difficulty in seeing the faded stop line. A few days after this incident, they received a challan for violating the red line even when it was not their mistake.
ASP (traffic) Pradeep Singh Chauhan said during the Road Safety Week, traffic police had asked Indore Municipal Corporation to repaint the faded stop lines and zebra lines. “Authorities will soon repaint them,” he said.
