What’s the idea
Retractable spikes before the zebra crossing that come out when the traffic signal is red to prevent signal jumping by vehicles. Now wait till the traffic light gets green or risk getting your vehicle tyre punctured.
Siva Mahima who was quite concerned with the poor traffic sense of commuters specially when they disregard lanes, jump signals and break other traffic rules, came up with this idea. She loves animals, likes reading about wildlife and wants to become a veterinary doctor. Her hobbies include singing, origami and other craft work.
