If you happen to commute in the city post 10 pm or 11 pm, then you are bound to see the blinking amber lights at traffic signals. This clearly shows a situation that can cause major traffic accidents. Ironically, the traffic police only flash amber lights at night.


It is a huge threat, say commuters. One regular who goes back home after work says he is pretty scared he might get killed or handicapped if some speeding vehicle comes from the back and crashes into his vehicle. Similarly, another person who works in Jubilee Hills and goes to Kharkhana says she was almost dead three times when she missed accidents by sheer luck.


Many want better rules for night traffic as it becomes doubly dangerous. According to research done by BITS, Hyderabad, a large number of major accidents happen between 9 pm, and 3 am as there is a movement of heavy vehicles in the city.


They suggested that there must be ample illumination at roadway stretches and provision for a safe pedestrian crossing facility at intersections. Meanwhile, the joint commissioner of Hyderabad traffic police, AV Ranganath, says officials have been turning off signals at night. Fixed and working traffic signals might cause inconvenience to commuters during the night, he says.


However, he further adds that ITMS or Intelligent Traffic Management System will resolve issues from July 31. AI-based technology will do away with manual intervention and will access traffic intensity, and the traffic lights will work on that basis. The cameras will also gauge vehicular movements and pedestrian movements, which will reduce the burden on traffic police, he says.
