Click the photographs of pedestrians in difficulties, and send!

Dear all, 
 
After doing a series of pedestrian events called “Come, Cross the Road” to observe and highlight the issues faced by pedestrians on Bangalore roads, Hasiru Usiru is  now ready to release the final draft of the report with our findings and observations.
 
As part of this event, we would like to showcase photographs emphasising the different problems faced by pedestrians on a daily basis. The problems could be any of the below or ANYTHING you perceive to be a problem for pedestrians in the city. 
 
  • Difficulty in crossing the roads
  • Bad footpaths
  • Dimly lit subways, inaccessible skywalks
  • Roads where flyovers start/end where people cannot cross 
  • Motorbikes parked/riding on the pavement 
  • Garbage and construction material on the footpaths 
  • Signal-free corridors (aerial shots if you have will be super!) 
  • Badly lit roads which are unsafe
  • Roads, Foothpaths made inaccessible for people with special needs
We request all of you to please share any such photos- we’ll showcase a total of 30 selected photos in the photo exhibition with due credits.
 
Please mail the photos to sridhar.raman@gmail.com 
 
Please do share the photos with us by October 15th. Please also let us know how we should credit you. You can also send us pictures with credits as a water-mark else we can put up the credits seperately if you wish us to do it that way.
 
Please also do share this call with as many people as possible. 
 
Thanks,
Vinay Sreenivasa for Hasiru Usiru

Four hundred and twenty people continue to lose their lives on Indian roads every single day. In 2022, India recorded 4.43 lakh road crashes, resulting in the death of 1.63 lakh people. Vulnerable road-users like pedestrians, bicyclists and two-wheelers riders comprised 67% of the deceased. Road crashes also pose an economic burden, costing the exchequer 3.14% of India’s GDP annually.  These figures underscore the urgent need for effective interventions, aligned with global good practices. Sweden's Vision Zero road safety policy, adopted in 1997, focussed on modifying infrastructure to protect road users from unacceptable levels of risk and led to a…

Many roadblocks to getting a PUC certificate for your vehicle

Under new rule, vehicles owners have to pay heavy fines if they fail to get a pollution test done. But, the system to get a PUC certificate remains flawed.

Recently, there’s been news that the new traffic challan system will mandate a Rs 10,000 penalty on old or new vehicles if owners don't acquire the Pollution Under Control (PUC) certification on time. To tackle expired certificates, the system will use CCTV surveillance to identify non-compliant vehicles and flag them for blacklisting from registration. The rule ultimately has several drawbacks, given the difficulty in acquiring PUC certificates in the first place. The number of PUC centres in Chennai has reduced drastically with only a handful still operational. Only the petrol bunk-owned PUC centres charge the customers based on the tariff…
