NEW DELHI: From show­ing the mir­ror to hel­met­less pil­lion rider and bring­ing sports­man with the safety mes­sages, Delhi Traf­fic Po­lice puts all-around ef­fort dur­ing Na­tional Road Safety Week- 2019.

In an in­ter­est­ing cam­paign, the Delhi Traf­fic po­lice of­fi­cer holds up a mir­ror in front of a hel­met­less pil­lion rider on a busy road. Later, he starts flip­ping plac­ards that have some thought-pro­vok­ing mes­sages for hel­met­less riders. At the ITO Cross­ing, Head Con­sta­ble San­deep Ku­mar, now pop­u­larly known as “THE HEL­MET MAN” has pre­pared a pre­sen­ta­tion with plac­ards, dis­play­ing catchy mes­sages on road safety and ap­peal­ing two-wheeler riders to use stan­dard hel­mets.

Dur­ing the cam­paign, renowned crick­eters like Ishant Sharma and Viren­der Se­hwag joined hands with Delhi Po­lice and urged Del­hi­ites to fol­low traf­fic rules and main­tain road safety.

Joint Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice (Traf­fic) Alok Ku­mar and Deputy Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice (Traf­fic) Eish Sing­hal have con­ducted an in­ter­ac­tive ses­sion with stu­dents at Atma Ram Sanatan Dharma (ARSD) Col­lege at the col­lege it­self.

Road safety aware­ness cam­paigns were launched by the traf­fic po­lice per­son­nel at var­i­ous lo­ca­tions like Se­nior Sec­ondary Girls and Boys School (Shal­i­mar Bagh), Shanti Devi Pub­lic School, GR In­ter­na­tional School and Updesh Kaur Pub­lic School (Bawana) and brief­ing for the driv­ers of var­i­ous ve­hi­cles and com­muters of E-rick­shaw, Gramin Sewa, RTVS and oth­ers about road safety at Kan­jhawla Road, at Rithala and Ro­hini West Metro sta­tion, B-block, Ring Road.

Dur­ing a sem­i­nar, Taj Has­san, Spe­cial Com­mis­sioner of Po­lice, Traf­fic pointed out that apart from the use of tech­nol­ogy and aware­ness pro­grammes to get the de­sired re­sults there is a great need of self-dis­ci­pline amongst the masses and co­or­di­na­tion among stake­hold­ers to im­prove the over­all road safety. The Spe­cial CP also asked in­dus­tries to join hands in en­sur­ing road safety in ev­ery pos­si­ble way.

More than 1.25 mil­lion peo­ple around the globe lose their life due to traf­fic mishaps and nearly 50 mil­lion get in­jured, of­ten re­sult­ing in dis­abil­ity.

Even the pedes­tri­ans on the roads are at the risk of los­ing their life due to cal­lous and neg­li­gent be­hav­ior of oth­ers as well as their own. Nearly 20000 pedes­tri­ans lose their life an­nu­ally in In­dia, as they are more vul­ner­a­ble on road due to lack of safety.
