23rd road safety week concludes
Srinagar, Jan 7: A weeklong awareness campaign on 23rd Road Safety Week concluded today with a function held at Banquet Hall, Srinagar.
Agriculture minister Ghulam Hassan Mir in his address emphasized on obeying traffic rules as negligence of both driver and commuters results in loss of precious life. He said that this could be checked if both strictly adhere to the traffic rules.
He directed Traffic authorities to come with a proposal for making J&K an accident Free State, adding that Government will provide every support to make such proposal a success.
Mir said that Traffic Police alone cannot shoulder the responsibility, need of the hour is to understand that every member is responsive. He stressed on launching massive awareness campaign to sensitize people regarding traffic rules and asked authorities to organize such programmes at district and tehsil level also throughout year and not to make it an annual ritual.
SP Traffic, Srinagar, Haseeb-ur-Rehman also spoke on the occasion and threw light on the implementation of traffic rules and regulations.
Jammu and Kashmir Scouts and Guides also participated in the weeklong traffic programme.
