It’s New Delhi Pedestrian Safety Week!

While pedestrian safety week hoardings have been put up, and a haggard traffic cop occasionally does herd pedestrians towards the footpath, they continue to cross the road miles away from the zebra crossing. This might have something to do with vehicles standing on the zebra crossing.

“Why have a pedestrian week when they cannot even have facilities for pedestrians? What is the use of building a subway nearly half-a-km away from the bus stand?” Jency Mathews, a nurse at AIIMS, said.
