The state government has imposed a ban on the entry of 2 wheelers on the Outer Ring Road.
Following the death of former minister Komatireddy Venkat Reddy's son Pratheek Reddy and 2 others in a road accident on Tuesday, Home Minister P Sabitha Indira Reddy on Wednesday held a review meeting with the higher police officials over the growing incidences of road accidents on the Outer Ring Road.
It has now been decided to set up police out-posts every 25 kilometres on the entire stretch of the ORR. Speed guns will also be installed or utilised on the ORR.
As many as 10 patrolling vehicles will be deployed for the ORR, which will be manned by 40 policemen.
The patrolling, to be started from 1 January, will also be extended to the National Highway.
Since 2010, as many as 38 people have died and 39 others suffered injuries in different road accidents. Of them, 10 were related to 2-wheelers, 4 accidents were of 3-wheelers, and 46 accidents involved 4-wheelers - all having occurred on the Outer Ring Road. (INN)
