THEY have been credited with supernatural or paranormal properties since the days of ancient Egypt. Now the putative power of pyramids is to be harnessed by Indian police to cut road accidents. Traffic officers in Nagpur, 870km west of Mumbai, have agreed to allow small pyramids to be placed at 10 accident-prone sites in the city to see if their claimed positive energy can reduce crashes.
Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Sahebrao Patil said the road safety initiative came about after a meeting with an expert in Vastu, an ancient Hindu system of construction which is similar to Chinese Feng Shui.
"He told me that he had placed a number of pyramids on roads outside the city and the results were excellent.The number of accidents reduced. He wanted to do it in the city, so I said, 'OK, no problem'," Mr Patil said.
"He's going to be installing them in 10 spots. They won't be on the road directly but at the corner of chowks (squares) or near traffic signals so they won't obstruct traffic."
Vastu expert Sushil Fatehpuria, who offered his services free of charge, said that each 30 centimetre tall pyramid will have a copper bottom and five smaller pyramids inside.
"I think the accidents are caused by negative energies. So we need to minimise or convert the negative energy into positive ones," he said.
"I will energise the pyramids. I will transfer my positive thoughts into the pyramids."
Mr Patil said his officers' own, more human, efforts to cut the number of road accidents would continue during the experiment.
"We will see in six months. If it gets positive results then that's excellent," he added.
A combination of an increase in drivers, many of them untrained, poor road planning and lax law enforcement have made India's roads the most dangerous in the world.
More than 114,000 people die each year, according to the World Bank.
Does material matter? Can the pyramids be made of tin foil?
I can feel some positive energy rising already!

if the pyramids are bright red, perhaps people will notice them, consider them a warning, and slow down.........Karma
They are gonna need more than pyramids to manage those roads I’m afraid. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUug9VIqh_g

There are pyramids in my head
There’s one underneath my bead
And my lady’s getting cranky
Every possible location
Has a simple explanation
And it isn’t hanky-panky
I had read
Somewhere in a book, they improve all your food and your wine
It said, that everything you grow in your garden would taste pretty fine
Instead, all I ever get is a pain in the neck and a
Yap yap yap yap yap yap yap yap
I’ve consulted all the sages
I could find in yellow pages
But there aren’t many of them
And the mayan panoramas
On my pyramid pajamas
Haven’t helped my little problem
I’d been told
Someone in the know can be sure that his luck is as
Good as gold, money in the bank and you don’t even pay for it
If you fold, a dollar bill in the shape of the pyramid that’s printed on the back
It’s no lie
You can keep the edge of a razor as sharp as an
Eagle’s eye, you can grow a hedge that is vertically straight over
Ten feet high, all you really need is a pyramid and just a little luck
I had read, somewhere in a book, they improve all your food and wine and
I’d been told, someone in the know can be sure of his good luck and
It’s no lie, all you need is a little bit of pyramidic help
They could just try a Yield sign.
Which is shaped like the side ... of ... a ... PYRAMID!
“They could just try a Yield sign.”
Drive a big truck and try defensive driving and intimidation!!
pyramids are for mentally disordered sub humans!
Thanks shibumi!...have been credited with supernatural or paranormal properties since the days of ancient Egypt. Now the putative power of pyramids is to be harnessed by Indian police to cut road accidents.Wait a second... why not just make the *cars* pyramid-shaped?!?
