Ferrari accident a case study at traffic management workshop
Kolkata: The accident of the Ferrari sports car on National Highway 6 has come up as a case study during discussions on forensic issues at a traffic management workshop organised for all district heads of the state's traffic police.
Around 40 police officers including 21, who were recently posted as Deputy Superintendents of Police to oversee traffic management in the districts, attended the two-day-long workshop that concluded on Friday. It is the first posting for the 21 police officers where they had to get accustomed to the system of traffic management. This is the first time when so many newly commissioned officers were posted as district chiefs to oversee traffic and ensure better management.
Different traffic related aspects including traffic management, traffic engineering, prosecution and forensic issues were discussed during the workshop that was held at Arakshya Bhavan in Salt Lake.
Senior police officers including Vivek Sahay, ADG (Traffic and Road Safety), Peeyush Pandey, ADG (Traffic II), Debasish Boral, IGP, Traffic (Safety), North Bengal, Prasun Bondopadhyay, Superintendent of Police of Dakshin Dinajpur and forensic scientist Dr Wasim Mir Ali, who carried out the forensic tests of the Ferrari car, held discussions on the topics.
Sources said that during the session on forensic issues, Dr Ali put forward the case of the recent accident involving a Ferrari car while explaining it to the officers the different aspects of forensic tests of the
vehicle that need to be carried out after any road mishap takes place. He also explained the precautions needed to ensure accurate results during the forensic tests.
After the theoretical part of the workshop, they were also taken to the control room of the Howrah Police Commissionerate to demonstrate how round-the-clock monitoring on traffic movement goes on through CCTV cameras.
