Q.

In an effort to bring down accidents in the rural parts of the district, the Nagpur rural police are even experimenting with vastu shastra, to reduce the "negative energy" in accident-prone zones. Vastu pyramids have reportedly been installed at 12 such places acorss the district to improve "vibes". D cops are monitoring d results to find out more about this phenomenon. As an immediate effect, though they say no accidents have taken place in these accidents-prone spots in d past 6 months. Do you think vastu shastra can work here also??

Although Vaastu Shastra is one of the one of the traditional Hindu canons of town planning and architecture but to what extent one can conclusively say it is a tried and trusted method. To avoid incidence of accident what need is proper road design features, better pavement designs, introduction of seat belt legislation, provision of air bags, incorporation of Electronic Stability Control, Compulsory training and licensing, Restrictions on driving while drunk or impaired by drugs, Photo enforcement of speed limits, etc. Use of mobile phone while driving should be prevented. There ought to be a restriction on drunken driving. Interventions aimed at improving safety of non-motorised users are:

segregated facilities such as cycle lanes, underpasses and overbridges
pedestrian barriers to prevent pedestrians crossing at junctions
limiting pedestrian access to highways
bicycle helmet promotion and compulsion
traffic awareness campaigns such as the "one false move" camp ...more
