The accident that happened in December 2012, in which two elderly people died and their children were seriously injured at Tank Bund, prompted the Lokayukta to direct the traffic police to put a limit on vehicles’ speed at 40 kmph.
In view of this order, the traffic police in the city are going to use a laser speed gun to check overspeeding at Tank Bund. Tank Bund is an accident prone zone. The laser gun is going to check vehicles from going at high speeds. Using laser guns, the traffic police can identify offenders.
According to rules, vehicles going at more than 40 kmph are said to be at overspeed.
The laser speed gun costs Rs 15 lakh.
