Many events have been planned as part of the Road Safety cam­paign to spread aware­ness among mo­torists and bik­ers. Many in­juries and deaths are caused due to the mo­tor­cy­cle rid­ers not wear­ing hel­mets. A hel­met rally has been planned on Satur­day, in which women bik­ers will ed­u­cate peo­ple on im­por­tance of wear­ing hel­mets.

To em­pha­sis the im­por­tance of giv­ing way to life-sav­ing am­bu­lances, a ‘Show Way to an Am­bu­lance’ rally has be­ing or­gan­ised on Sun­day.

“In 2015, 604 in­stances of road ac­ci­dents were re­ported in Navi Mum­bai, which were 17% more than the pre­vi­ous year. The onus of our safety is on our­selves and we must fol­low traf­fic rules to en­sure our safety and also save lives of other peo­ple who are in dis­tress,” deputy com­mis­sioner of po­lice (traf­fic) Arvind Salve had said on Wed­nes­day.
