Traffic Parks are attractions created for the people, especially children, to promote awareness on road safety and traffic, with loads of fun. Typically, Traffic Parks are scaled-down versions of Real Street Networks, with the lane and street-width proportional to the smaller vehicles. Often they include operating traffic signals and during busy times are even staffed with traffic police.
One of the intentions of the traffic park is to improve awareness of traffic safety among the school children. Many traffic parks enable children to gain hands-on experience crossing streets alone and with another pedestrian or on a bicycle to demonstrate the safety challenges in a highly controlled environment devoid of actual motor vehicles.
Traffic Parks are an attraction created especially for the kids, with the primary objective of inculcating traffic rules in them from an early age. Traffic parks are actually a scaled-down version of real-time street networks, with lanes and streets equivalent to the smaller vehicles. Our main intention with Traffic Park project is to improve awareness of traffic safety among school children.
