The Belgaum Traffic police is spending about 50 lakhs getting the city with some better traffic sense to follow.
We have now Zebra crossings marked at almost all circles. We have the new reflectors, traffic eyes installed as well and BUS bays being marked.
This is for the first time that actually BUS BAYS have been marked in the city. The city buses with lack of bus shelters used to stop anywhere the drivers felt like and hence caused a lot of problems to the traffic.
Now with the BUS bays being marked and we hope the same has been communicated to the KSRTC bus drivers that they need to stop their bus within the bus bay marking. In fact fines should be imposed for not doing so.
Bus bays have been marked at many places like Chennamma circle, D Sambhaji Chowk, College road etc.
No doubt the Zebra crossings have also being marked but people are not encouraged to use the same
