Commissioner Thivikrama Varma said that the police have submitted a representation over some of the issues to the GVMC. “Many areas do not have proper illumination, which will help prevent not only accidents but also crime. Eight major traffic signals are dysfunctional in the city,” the Commissioner of Police pointed out. As many as 232 CCTV cameras in various areas of the city remain non-functional, according to him.
The GVMC and the Visakhapatnam police department agreed upon setting up speed breakers and barricades at accident-prone points to avoid any unfortunate incidents.
