Bengaluru Police uses Cop Mannequins to Curb Traffic Violations
GUWAHATI: Bengaluru Police have come up with a unique idea to curb traffic violators by erecting mannequins dressed up like traffic personnel at certain key junctions.
City additional commissioner (traffic) B R Ravikanthe Gowda said that he came up with the idea after observing motorists putting on helmets, drivers fastening their seat-belts and stopping using mobile phones after they spot traffic policemen from a distance.
The police believe, the law-breakers would now think twice before jumping a signal, accelerating above speed-limits or bending any other road rule after they spot the mannequins.
