Safety Crossing - Tips & List of Subways & Footbridges in Chennai

:: Safety Crossing - Tips & List of Subways & Footbridges in Chennai ::

Drive safely is the one thing every one is talking about. But we should not forget to walk safely. Walking in Chennai roads is never an easy job. With traffic across all the corners and the number of vehicles increasing everyday, It makes the pedestrians to take a double care while they walking and especially crossing the roads. Here are few tips which can help us cross the road safely :
Tips for the safety crossing :
  • Look for a safe place to cross
  • Look at both the sides of the road and listen to the traffic before crossing the road
  • If any vehicle is passingby on any of the side, make way to pass it on and then cross the road
  • Always look for the zebra crossing to cross the roads
  • It is advisable to prefer Sub-ways & Footbridges wherever it is available
  • If you feared on seeing the heavy traffic, never try to cross on your own. Wait for the other people or traffic police to help you cross the road
  • Signal is not just for the vehicle drivers, its also for the pedestrians. Look at the signal before crossing the road and if the timer machine is installed in signal, make sure you have enough time left to cross the road
  • Take an extra caution while crossing the one-way roads where traffic will be moving at a high speed. Make sure that road is clear before crossing
  • Never hesitate to gesture your hand when the vehicle started moving in the signal while crossing the road.
  • Do look for any elderly people, specially abled or persons with disability before crossing the road. Help them to cross the road.
  • Don't cross at the corners and bends in the roads where vehicles taking the turn and they cannot see you in time.
  • Never run while crossing the road. Be patient and wait until the road is clear. Even if the vehicles started moving in signal, stay calm and walk. Don't run.
  • Be careful when crossing cycles and rickshaws, eventhough they are found less in numbers in our city. They might be travelling slowly but they do not have efficient braking system and can cause serious injuries to both.
  • If you are crossing the road with a younger child, always hold his or her hand while walking and crossing on the road
  • Avoid using cellphones while crossing the road.

  5. Problem: HP Printer not connecting to my laptop.

    I had an issue while connecting my 2 year old HP printer to my brother's laptop that I had borrowed for starting my own business. I used a quick google search to fix the problem but that did not help me.

    I then decided to get professional help to solve my problem. After having received many quotations from various companies, i decided to go ahead with Online Tech Repair (

    Reasons I chose them over the others:
    1) They were extremely friendly and patient with me during my initial discussions and responded promptly to my request.
    2) Their prices were extremely reasonable.
    3) They were ready and willing to walk me through the entire process step by step and were on call with me till i got it fixed.

    How did they do it
    1) They first asked me to state my problem clearly and asked me a few questions. This was done to detect any physical connectivity issues with the printer.
    2) After having answered this, they confirmed that the printer and the laptop were functioning correctly.
    3) They then, asked me if they could access my laptop remotely to troubleshoot the problem and fix it. I agreed.
    4) One of the tech support executives accessed my laptop and started troubleshooting.
    5) I sat back and watched as the tech support executive was navigating my laptop to spot the issue. The issue was fixed.
    6) I was told that it was due to an older version of the driver that had been installed.

    My Experience
    I loved the entire friendly conversation that took place with them. They understood my needs clearly and acted upon the solution immediately. Being a technical noob, i sometimes find it difficult to communicate with tech support teams. It was a very different experience with the guys at Online Tech Repairs. You can check out their website or call them on 1-914-613-3786.
    Would definitely recommend this service to anyone who needs help fixing their computers.
    Thanks a ton guys. Great Job....!!
