New Delhi: Road Safety Week is celebrated from January 11 to 17 every year in India to create awareness about road safety and minimise road accidents and save lives by National Safety Council of India along with the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways.
This year, we at Seniors Hub Dwarka, a registered NGO, participated virtually in the Road Safety Week by sharing road safety related slogans every day through WhatsApp and Twitter. They were then shared with their near and dear ones.
The importance of this can be gauged from the fact that many members of the Seniors Hub contributed hand-written slogans, some of which were used.
Road safety has always been on our agenda. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, we had organised physical talks with the experts from Delhi Traffic Police and as well as fellow NGOs and Corporates on the topics – Drive Safe Drive Smart and Hella Lighting.
Even during the pandemic period, we had organised virtual talk with Rama Shankar Pandey, Managing Director of Hella India Lighting Ltd, who is associated with various road safety bodies, through Zoom meetings for our members.
Although this awareness week is over, we plan to continue with this by sharing slogans, received from members, occasionally and make it a regular feature. A collage of some of the slogans is being shared.
