Traf­fic po­lice to use video mes­sages for aware­ness

Millennium Post - - Mp City - ABHAY SINGH

NEW DELHI: The Delhi Po­lice will be us­ing video mes­sages to cre­ate aware­ness among com­muters re­gard­ing traf­fic rules and reg­u­la­tions. The

law en­force­ment agency claimed that the new ini­tia­tive is a part of their road safety cam­paign.

The idea started from the Facebook page of As­sis­tant Sub In­spec­tor Ram­bir, de­ployed in Delhi Traf­fic Po­lice (DTP), where any­one can see sev­eral videos in which he cre­ates aware­ness re­gard­ing traf­fic rules among the com­muters and also among the chil­dren. In one such video tweeted from the of­fi­cial han­dle of Delhi Traf­fic Po­lice, it can be seen that the po­lice­man is talk­ing about the Mo­tor Ve­hi­cle Act.

In the video which is around 1.02-minute long, the po­lice per­son­nel said that af­ter the red-light, ve­hi­cles should halt be­fore stop

line. “If you cross the line, it is the vi­o­la­tion of MV Act,” said the per­son­nel in the video.

Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the video mes­sages are an ef­fec­tive means to ed­u­cate peo­ple re­gard­ing traf­fic rules. Talk­ing to the Mil­len­nium Post, Joint Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice (Traf­fic) Alok Ku­mar said that they al­ways cre­ate aware­ness re­gard­ing traf­fic safety through dif­fer­ent modes in­clud­ing so­cial me­dia. “The video mes­sages are a part of our road safety cam­paign,” said Joint CP Alok Ku­mar.

When asked more traf­fic po­lice per­son­nel will be in­volved in the ini­tia­tive, the Joint CP said that they are look­ing into it.
