Noida: To curb accidents during inclement weather conditions, Gautam Budh Nagar traffic police has rolled out a drive to paste reflective tapes on vehicles, barricades and pillars. The reflective tapes are designed to enhance visibility in low light and at night. When the back lights of vehicles do not function properly, the reflectors play an important role in alerting commuters driving in the same direction.
Dense fog conditions, DCP (traffic) Ganesh Prasad Saha said, during winter lead to a reduction in visibility and make city roads prone to accidents and the initiative was aimed at curbing mishaps. “We have started pasting these tapes on tractors, trucks and other vehicles. It has been observed that speeding vehicles often hit dividers near the DND flyway toll plaza due to poor visibility. So, reflective tapes are being put up on the flyway too,” Saha told TOI.
