Beware, say, researchers, between 9 pm and 3 am as it is the time when heavy vehicles ply the roads. There have been multiple deaths during this period, and the issue has become such a cause of concern that a study has been carried out specifically for the purpose.


The research carried out from the Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani, Hyderabad campus, has identified heavy motor vehicles and vehicle movement between 9 pm and 3 am as the most critical variables impacting fatal traffic collisions in Hyderabad.


The crash data was obtained from the Hyderabad police department, and risk factors were classified into six categories. Recommended measures included providing a safe pedestrian crossing facility at intersections and adequate night-time illumination of roadway stretches, among others.


The data was collected from 60 police stations where the highest number of crashes happened across Hyderabad between 2015 and 2019. A comprehensive database with road traffic injury information such as the date, time, and location of the crash, the number of injuries and fatalities, and vehicle details were developed as a part of the study.


Data from the past couple of years was excluded as it is not consistent due to the pandemic. Risk variables are divided into six categories like very high risk, high risk, moderate risk, low risk, very low risk, and very low risk.


Some solutions suggested by the study include safe pedestrian crossing facilities at crossings, pedestrian signals at intersections, suitable road markings, and traffic signage. Jaywalking, which leads to many deaths, will be avoided by the installation of pedestrian guardrails in strategic areas.


Meanwhile, heavy-vehicle drivers will be educated about the safety of vulnerable road users through education and training initiatives.
