Let’s pledge to observe Traffic Rules this Road Safety Week. Regional Transport Office has drafted a schedule of events for observance of 31st Road Safety Week-2020 commencing from 11 January to 17 January. Walkathon rally was organized from Gulshan Ground to Rotary Club Gandhi Nagar on the first day in which all the stakeholders including, school children, driving institutes, transport associations, Police, SRTC, Civil Defense, NCC, NYK etc. participated. Road safety awareness cum health check up camps was organized at Railway Station by Health & Ayurvedic Department and Red Cross Society for drivers and conductors. There are several other events to be organised the whole week. NCC volunteers along with officers of MVD, Traffic and LMD will distribute pamphlets on road safety, they will sensitize auto drivers about usage of meters at different chowks of Jammu. Painting cum poster competition will be organized at Wave Mall in which students from various schools and colleges will participate where as on 15th January women’s two wheeler rally will be flagged off from Jammu University. Blood Donation Camp and Street Plays regarding road safety will also be organized in different parts of the city. On 16th January, symposium on road safety will be organized at Brigadier Rajinder Singh Auditorium Jammu University in which students from various schools and colleges will participate. On the last day of the Road Safety Week, a valedictory function will be organized in Police Auditorium in which cultural items, skits on road safety theme, speeches by experts and prize distribution will be the key features of the event. The events are many, but the fact remains that such program should be effective. Just organising programs, celebrating Road Safety Week is not enough. The change must be visible after organising such events. Organising programs just for the sake to complete paper work is not enough. People of Jammu want a change. We want our traffic to run as smoothly as it happens in the cities like Chandigarh. People of Jammu are fed up of traffic jams, people are fed up of overspending matadors, people are fed up of traffic violators. Let’s pledge to make our traffic system efficient this Road Safety Week.
