Just wearing a helmet while driving on the road is not enough. But it is also very important to check and verify whether the helmet is ISI marked or not. Instead of being colourful, it would be better if it is white in colour as the white colour reflects from a distance.
Chandigarh Traffic Police taught this lesson of awareness to the children doing vocational courses of Jan Shikshan Sansthan, Sector 38, under the ongoing 35th Road Safety Month. Organized in collaboration with Omkar Charitable Foundation, this awareness session on road safety rules was organised under the supervision of DSP Traffic Jaswinder Singh. On this occasion, Director of the institute Arvind Singhi and Chairman of Omkar Charitable Foundation Ravinder Singh Billa, traffic police officers and personnel along with instructors and children of the institute were present.
During the awareness session, children were not only made aware of road safety rules, but everyone also took a pledge to follow these rules seriously in future. Traffic police personnel also made the children aware of the dangers to life and property of driving without wearing safety gear through videos. He said that everyone should follow traffic rules. He encouraged to use helmet while driving a two-wheeler, not to ride triple and to drive within prescribed speed.
Ravinder Singh Billa, Chairman of Omkar Charitable Foundation, told the children not to drive or allow vehicles to be driven without a license. Always use a helmet while riding a bike and seat belt while driving a car. Don’t let anyone drive while intoxicated. Go to your house and make your parents and neighbors aware about safety through you. He explained to the children about awareness campaigns, traffic rules and road accidents. By following traffic rules, the ever increasing road accidents can be controlled. Everyone should together be aware of road safety. Being aware of road safety means that you are conscious of the safety of your life.
