accidents in Panchkula during the last two years has highlighted that the majority of the accidents in 2014 and 2015 were caused by four-wheelers Further out of the total 162 accidents one third of the accidents occurred on the National Highway The study was conducted by Professor Har Amrit Sandhu from PEC University of Technology along with his team of three students “The idea was to identify the black spots ie the accident-prone spots in Panchkula which sees a huge influx of tourists as it is the gateway to Shimla Since the city is still being developed ascertaining the black spots can help in better planning of the city” says Professor Sandhu For the study details about the accidents caused in Panchkula during 2013-14 and 2014-15 were obtained from the Panchkula Police Headquarters

spots at various junctions in the city which have had a high frequency of accidents over the last two years Due to relatively high speed of vehicles and larger percentage of heavy vehicles over one third of the total accidents caused have occurred on the National Highway according to the study Four major black spots have been identified on the NH “We have also made suggestions to ensure that the frequency of accidents at these black spots can be reduced Suggestions have been made for creation of more slip roads construction of medians along with widening of roads installation of signal lights and smoothening of sharp blind curves to avoid accidents At several places there is also a need for a better traffic signage system” Professor Sandhu adds ACP (Traffic) Munish Sehgal asserts that the Panchkula Traffic Police is keeping a check on the accidents in the city and efforts are being made to reduce them “Regular monthly meetings are organised with the NHAI and other authorities to keep a
