Hyderabad: While dividers might be a good thing to avoid traffic congestion, these structures meant to ensure safety often become the cause of fatal mishaps.
Accidents occur during night due to poorly-lit roads and negligence of municipal officials on the busy roads of the city. There are several roads in the city where road dividers have become invisible due to dust and smoke. Due to poor lighting on roads they are not visible to commuters during night hours resulting in accidents.
Municipal Department is not paying attention to these dividers which are giving an open invitation to mishaps. Many dividers in the city have become black due to dust and smoke. GHMC should regularly paint the roads, erect reflectors at the beginning of a median and put up lights on the roads.
Last night a speedy car crashed into the divider which had become black due to dust and smoke at Puranapul to Bahadurpura stretch. It rammed into a motor cycle before crashing into the divider.
