Blinking LED traffic stop lines introduced in Hyderabad

If you see LEDs blinking on traffic stop lines, don’t be amazed. Hyderabad traffic Police have mounted flickering lights in three distinct colors blue, green and orange to alert motorists at the KBR Park junction.

The LED lights switch colors automatically along with the traffic lights installed on the nearby traffic signal.

With batteries connected to a pole on the side of the road, these LEDs run 24 hours a day, and are even waterproof in the rain.

This idea was mooted after many motorists failed to notice the signals from a distance and slow down the vehicle. These lights are visible from a distance and gives motorists more time to brake,” said a senior police official. Earlier police were only putting road markings using different colors to indicate the different traffic signs.
