Noida: 7X Welfare Team with the help of Noida Traffic Police, organized efforts of Sharp NGO(an NGO working towards health programs in schools), Nilgiri school administration, Traffic Volunteers, students from Noida created awareness on road safety near Nilgiri Hills Public School in Sector 50.
Students are excited as after almost two years, schools have reopened for physical classes. This will result in increased traffic on the road of school buses and children going to school. As per 7X, despite government regulation, school-going children often do not wear helmets.
During the camp, people seen without a helmet were stopped and guided on the importance of wearing a helmet. They were also made aware of traffic rules. Emphasis was laid on school-going children and their parents.
Shreya, a volunteer from 7X volunteer says, "We met people on road and requested them to be safe and secure by wearing helmets. We noticed that commuters were tripling on two-wheelers. We were surprised to see adults riding with four-year-old and still not wearing a helmet. We humbly request all of them not to take life casually."
The children and their parents also took an oath that from now onwards they will always wear a helmet and also make sure to lock its clip. Many students and parents got inspired towards the cause of road safety and promised to inspire others.
Traffic Sub Inspector Mehsoor, Rakesh Yadav and some officials from the Noida traffic team requested commuters to follow the traffic rules.
Rakesh Yadav, Noida Traffic Police says, "It is our country and our duty to make everyone aware of traffic rules. Today, we issued a challan on a student and he complained to a higher officer. I believe that everyone is equal and every life is precious."
7X Welfare team is running a campaign on road safety in collaboration with Noida traffic police.
