A Twitter handle belonging to one Aniruddha Mukharjee spotted the sign – four black dots on a white background. The curious commuter clicked a picture and tweeted, tagging the traffic police, “What traffic symbol is this? @wftrps @blrcitytraffic. This is put up just before Hopefarm signal!”

In a quick response, the Whitefield area traffic police revealed the meaning of the sign on the road adding that it has been adopted in the interests of blind people to ensure their safety on roads. Noting that there is a blind school at Hopefarm Junction at the location, the tweet said that the traffic board is a cautionary sign board which indicates that a blind person can be present on the road and therefore commuters need to exercise caution while driving.

Twitter reactions

Following the traffic police’s response, many took to the comment section and lauded the move. While one user said, “didn’t know this. Thanks for educating us”, another one wrote, “Thanks for informing. I was not knowing.”
