Sasthan: To protect dogs from coming under the wheels of speeding vehicles and to alert the drivers, a group of youth at Sasthan tied reflection belt to a street dog. The experiment, if successful will be implemented on other street dogs as well.
Most of the drivers face difficulties while driving on NH 66 crossing Sasthan as dogs chase their vehicle or run in front of the vehicles in huge group causing confusions and resulting in accidents on busy Udupi-Kundapura NH-66. The reflection belt will help the drivers to recognise the street dogs at a distance and drive accordingly.
The youth, in order to prevent the menace, tied a reflection belt to a dog. The experiment took place on Friday evening. The youth are expecting a positive result following which other dogs might be tied with the reflection belts.
