Date: 14 Nov 2018

As part of the commitment towards road safety, Haryana Government, MG Motor India and TRAX NGO announced a partnership to train teachers and educate school students across 200 schools in Gurugram and Faridabad on road safety over the next one-year period.

Focusing primarily on government schools, the programme entitled ‘Road Safety and Juniors Programme’ focuses on spreading road safety awareness to over 300,000 school students to make Indian roads safe and secure for all.

Supporting the initiative, senior officials and dignitaries from various government departments including Transport, Roads & Traffic Police attended the event held on Children’s Day at the Senior Government Senior Secondary School in Gurgaon, Chakkarpur. Also present at the occasion were Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director, and P. Balendran Executive Director, MG Motor India.

Addressing the students on the occasion, Dhanpat Singh, ACS – Transport Department, Haryana, said, “Road safety is the need of the hour and children, who represent India’s future, need to be educated about road safety mannerisms so that they can inculcate road safety habits among their peer group and their parents, to ensure a better tomorrow.”

The Road Safety & Juniors Initiative will last for one year across the Gurugram and Faridabad region, through a two-month long training programme for the teachers as well as for the students of each of the 200 schools. The road safety programme modules include training on the social impact of road crashes, necessity of inculcating road safety habits while walking on the road, basic knowledge of road infrastructure and role of bystanders in the case of a road crash, among other things. The unique feature about the initiative is that even children will be encouraged to become “First Respondents” in the case of an accident, in bringing the case to higher authorities and help organize immediate medical aid to the victims.
