Dedicated traffic signal for pedestrians to cross major road junctions safely @Chennai

This petition had 19 supporters


Hello All,

I want a change regarding how we cross the road. I live in Chennai and am yet to find a road junction where a traffic signal helps pedestrians to cross the road safely.

E.g. I see the way people cross the road in Olympia Tech Park traffic signal (Chennai). It is very dangerous, people many times have to run to cross the road in between the red/green/yellow signals which are meant for vehicles. Few of us can't judge properly when to cross (run/walk faster) the road and avoid getting hit by a vehicle. There is no one moment/opportunity which is given to the pedestrian to cross the road. It's sad to see older folk struggling to cross road.

Its not difficult to avoid this sad and scary situation. solution already exists; we just need to install the signals for pedestrians too and make vehicles not to stop on zebra crossing.

I request and urge COP of Chennai (traffic) to consider this request and receive praises & blessings from people of Chennai.

Regards,

Vinod N.
