Close shave as man’s bike hits unmarked hump on S V Road

Mumbai: The insensitivity and ineptness of the authorities proved costly for a Santa Cruz resident, who was taken by surprise by a new, unmarked speed breaker in a dimly-lit stretch of S V Road and fractured his left arm after being thrown off his motorbike on Monday night. He was lucky not to have been run over and has had to undergo multiple surgeries to implant a steel rod in his arm to fix the broken bones.

Yashraj Suvanam, 31, working as an insurance executive, regularly uses the road to reach his Goregaon workplace. "On Monday morning, I did not notice any speed breakers near Lions Garden in Daulat Nagar, Santa Cruz. The area is dark at night due to the dim lights. I was returning at 40-50kmph when I was thrown off my bike around 9pm as I could not see the hump," he told TOI.

Suvanam asked the Santa Cruz police to lodge an FIR against the civic authorities. But they asked him to approach the civic body with his complaint.

An autorickshaw passing by noticed Suvanam lying on the road and helped him reach a hospital. "There was no signage indicating that speed breakers had been laid. Despite riding on the left of the road, I met with the accident due to the civic body's shoddy work. I want severe action against the contractor," he said.

The BMC ward office said civic and traffic police officials recently surveyed the spot after complaints of overspeeding and accidents. Since there is a school nearby, cops suggested humps. "Considering the urgency, a temporary speed breaker with premix was made. A proposal for a regular hump has been submitted to the police and after taking their approval, a speed breaker according to Indian Road Congress standards will be made following recommendations like zebra painting," said a BMC officer.

"I have asked the local ward office for a report on the speed breaker and the accident details," said S V R Srinivas, additional municipal commissioner.

The Santa Cruz police have entered the incident in the traffic accident diary after receiving a call from the hospital where Suvanam is admitted.
