Gu­ru­gram traf­fic po­lice or­gan­ises road safety walk

Millennium Post - - City - OUR COR­RE­SPON­DENT

GURURGAM: As a part of on­go­ing Road Safety Week ini­tia­tive, Gu­ru­gram traf­fic po­lice and RSO Gu­ru­gram team on Sun­day have or­gan­ised a ‘Road Safety Walk’ fol­low­ing a quiz com­pe­ti­tion on road safety theme.

The safety of com­muters in Gururgam can be gauged from the fact that in 2018 two peo­ple died on the roads daily.

In 2018, the law en­force­ment of­fi­cials were not only able to re­duce the num­ber of ac­ci­dents but also the num­ber of ca­su­al­ties.

The new year, how­ever, has come up with more dif­fi­cul­ties as in the past few days there has been a spurt in mishaps in­volv­ing rash driv­ing.

“A ma­jor­ity of the ac­ci­dents hap­pen as the driv­ers are care­less or in a sce­nario where he is ir­re­spon­si­ble of not fol­low­ing the rules which are easy to fol­low. There is a price to pay for in­dis­ci­pline.”

“Un­for­tu­nately, in case of not fol­low­ing traf­fic rules, there is a high prob­a­bil­ity of you pay­ing it with your life,” said a se­nior po­lice of­fi­cial from Gu­ru­grm po­lice.

As part of its an­nual cam­paign on road safety, the Gu­ru­gram traf­fic po­lice will ob­serve the road safety pro­gramme in the city.

This is for the thir­ti­eth time the city traf­fic po­lice have ob­served such kind of pro­gramme.
