DH reports the ordeal of the govt school children in crossing the Old Madras Road.

".....One injury in a week

No wonder, at least one student suffers injuries in a week. “We attend to injured students with the first aid stocked in our school. However, some have serious injuries and we take them to the government hospital at K R Puram for stitches,” the teacher informs.

The latest victim was Class III student, Hanumanth, a resident of Nagawarpalya. He is not able to wear chappals presently due to the white bandage around his feet. “I saw a bus stationed at the bus stop at the Beniganahalli bus stop and crossed last Saturday.  But as I was walking, a dashing scooterist drove on my left leg and I fell down.”

Headmistress Sheelavathy said they had repeatedly requested the traffic police at Indira Nagar to put in place a traffic signal and have zebra crossing markings. “We have even sent a written request but nothing concrete has come out of it.”

The cop is missing most of the days, states another teacher.  Her words ring true when one notices cop Shakthivel sitting inside an autorickshaw and chatting with the driver.

“Accidents involving children take place but they are very few in number,” he claims.
Meanwhile, Circle Inspector (Traffic), Indira Nagar, Rajendran claimed that he had not received complaints from the public about the issue.

“We plan to install traffic lights after the proposed road widening work on this stretch. Presently, we are regularly posting traffic cops,” he claimed.  The widening work was likely to take six more months to complete.........."

It seems, the poorer have to endure all the civic problems that City has inherited from its bad management and governance.

Let us take up this cause and help these unfortunate ones.
