Are Chennai Roads Safe?

Posted on February 29, 2008. Filed under: chennai, sholinganallur |

Here is a photograph that I clicked @ the Sholinganallur bus stop in Chennai.  The kiddo sitting on the road belongs to a family of construction workers for the IT Highway coming up here.  Most of the workers are non-localites and live in cramped tents by the road side.  I even heard news of a couple of people who were runover by a bus when they were sleeping in a nearby bus stand.

 

Lot of accidents happen on this road.  Our company alone lost 3 employees in road accidents. Another colleague had a bus run over his hip. We used to play table tennis together.  He can barely walk without a support stick now. And worst of them all,  read this incident.
