With an aim to create an awareness about the New Motor Vehicle Act 2019 and road safety, Road Safety Organisation (RSO) Team and Gurugram Traffic Police started a campaign to educate people about the new policy.
In the campaign, RSO team along with Gurugram Traffic Police is conducting series of workshops to educate people about the New Motor Vehicle Act 2019 which came into effect from September 1, 2019. As per the new rules, heavy penalty will be imposed if someone is found violating traffic rules.
RSO Rajkumar Yadav said, "New rules will address the dire state of road safety in the country. And to achieve the long-term objective of safer roads, dedicated efforts are needed to create awareness and educate all the stakeholders about the changes and its impact."
In this series, a workshop was organised at Jeevan Jyoti School in sector 4, Gurugram, wherein students were informed about the new penalties and clauses of the act. The students were also told about the offence committed by juveniles and the impact on their guardian (or vehicle owner). They were also told about other new fines introduced like blocking the way of emergency vehicles etc. They were also asked to take pledge to follow all the traffic rules.
"We started this campaign with school students who were informed about the new rules and regulations. The campaign will be taken to other schools, colleges and corporate in the coming weeks," informed Yadav.
“We will also conduct workshop with auto drivers to ensure that they follow traffic rules strictly,” added Yadav.
Traffic Inspector Bhartendu Kumar, ZO Bijender Kumar along with RSO Team Members Jagdish Baweja, Kaeshika Diwani, Raj Kumar Yadav and Tarun Batra joined the campaign.
