Efforts on to make Srinagar accident free: ARTO
ROAD SAFETY WEEK
Srinagar, Jan 4: Terming the Road Safety Week as a mission, Additional Road Transport Officer Srinagar Abdul Majid Bhat said efforts are on to make Srinagar roads accident free.
“Road Safety Week is not a mere event but a motto to stop road accidents, to ensure compliance with traffic rules and to encourage the rule followers. Cooperation of people is a precondition for success of road safety while coordination between various departments is also important”, Bhat said.
“Only fifty percent people are aware about signal lights installed recently,” he said underscoring the need to organise more awareness programmes on traffic rules.
“In 2011, 68 people died of bike accidents and in 2012, only 60 people died which the department sees as an achievement.
He said a free medical camp will be held on January 5. “A road show will be organized on January 6 to spread awareness about traffic rules,” he added. (KNS)
