SSP Love Kumar launched the Road Safety Month yesterday with a rally of schoolchildren and traffic policemen from the police control room in Sector 14A.
Senior superintendent of police (SSP) Love Kumar launched the Road Safety Month yesterday by flagging off a rally of schoolchildren and traffic policemen from the control room at Sector 14A, Noida.
The initiative is meant to raise awareness among the public about traffic rules.
"Drivers have a habit of violating rules in Noida — as they cross the Delhi border and enter Noida, they undo their seatbelts and bikers take off their helmets. We need to change this mindset," said Harinder Bhatti, a member of Active Citizens’ Team, which is involved in creating awareness about traffic rules in the city.
Schools, too, have extended full support to the initiative.
"Besides holding awareness workshops for the students, we have been motivating them to stop their parents from violating traffic norms. At the parent-teacher meetings too, parents are motivated to obey traffic rules," said Rajeev Sharma, a resident in Sector 20.
The traffic police observes Road Safety Month in November every year and holds workshops at schools, colleges and community centres.
