A death trap for pedestrians in Bangalore (video blog0


IndiBlogger - Where Indian Blogs Meet

Encroachment of Footpaths is a way of life in Bangalore thanks to the
laxity of the concerned authorities. More often than not the Pedestrian
risk their lifes and limbs to walk on the road. Here is an example of
the perfect death trap for pedestrians in Bangalore where neither they
have the footpath nor the road to walk.
This is the part of Indiranagar 100ft Road, Bangalore where the Metro
Rail work is going on. Vehicles are cramped for space and it is only
but essential that the footpath is kept clear. However, the concerned
authorities as usual are least both about the Pedestrians. The entire
stretch of footpath has been encroached in some way or the other
especially you will see between the 38th Second and 50 Second of this
video that a builder has dumped all this construction material on the
footpath leaving no space at all for the pedestrian to walk on the
footpath. Don’t know if the concerned authorities have seen this or
not?
What will happen, at best, a pedestrian may get run over by a vehicle.
A few vehicles will get burnt and compensation will be paid to family
of the victim. Life will be back to normal in a couple of days but the
spirit of footpath encroachment should carry on proudly
