Delhi pedestrians 'to receive rewards'

People crossing the road after taking flights to Delhi could bear in mind the importance of keeping safe, as it may see them picking up a reward.

In an attempt to promote the safety of pedestrians in the city, the traffic police have devised the idea of offering prizes worth 5,000 rupees (£61) for people who use the capital's many footbridges.

People that use the bridges at peak times will be handed leaflets and a prize draw will be conducted, with the holders of the winning tickets to be given the money.

Coupons were first handed out from January 1st 2012 as part of Road Safety Week, with Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of Delhi's traffic police, explaining nearly 20,000 were given to people in the first week alone.
