Bangalore Traffic Police in India using items from dolls

The Indian government created a new doll and placed it in the city of Bangalore in order to deter traffic offenders in India. ...

In a related context, the authorities in the city of Bangalore in southern India revealed an unusual way to prevent violators from violating the traffic law, which are police elements of the dolls.

Dressed in traffic police clothes, hats, white shirts and radioactive jackets with badges, these dolls are placed at major intersections in the hope that they will drive drivers to respect traffic laws.

With 8 million cars driving on busy roads in Bangalore, the police say they do not have enough human personnel to manage all of the intersections.

"The idea is not to scare anyone, but to abide by the traffic rules," said Haskar Rao, city police commissioner.

He added: "There are 44 thousand intersections in the city, but traffic lights have been placed in only about 450 of them, and in the rest of the intersections the police themselves manage the traffic."

He explained that the policemen use the "hide-and-seek" technique to replace the dolls with human elements from time to time to keep the drivers abiding by the law.

And the Bangalore, which is called the "Silicon Valley" of India, is home to about 13 million people, and these dolls received mixed reactions about its success in its mission; some considered it an innovative idea from the police and others judged its failure.
