The Police commissioner told that the mannequins will be rotatable yet fixed at their permanent spot. He added that the mannequins become necessary as people usually don’t follow traffic laws until they see a traffic policeman in the vicinity. “I have planted the idea. The officers will take care of the rest,” said the commissioner.

Notably, this is not the first time Bengaluru has got smart with the way they deal with people who don’t abide by the laws. Last year in November, police has deployed as many as 174 mannequins in the region to keep the motorists in check. Police said that the idea had great results.

City additional commissioner (traffic) B R Ravikanthe Gowda had told PTI that he came up with the idea when he saw motorists putting on their helmets after seeing a policeman standing from afar.

“If the experiment works, the men in khaki would have mannequins with cameras in future to track vehicles and collect valid evidence to nail errant drivers or riders. Initially, motorists will be alert on seeing the mannequins, but will regret later that they had been fooled,” he said.
