KOLKATA: A 58-year-old woman from a village close to Nadia’s Ranaghat was killed on Wednesday while crossing Gariahat Road .
The increasing vulnerability of pedestrians to traffic accidents is largely due to the conflicts between pedestrian and vehicles, excess speed, careless driving and poor road visibility.
She slipped and fell, after which a private bus ran her over.
She tripped while negotiating the railing and fell on the Ballygunge-bound flank just when the signal turned green.
These problems can be minimized by installing a good signal system, preventing U-turns, eliminating irregular stopping of autos at intersections and installing road dividers, among other things,” they had noted.
