A two day training programme on Road safety organised by State Institute of Education (SIE) Kashmir was concluded on Tuesday.
In a handout issued here, the program was attended by Lecturers and Masters from all the districts of south Kashmir and Budgam who were given trainings on Road Safety Rules on the occasion.
"A large number of people got killed in road accidents because of ignorance about the Road Safety Rules," the official handout read.
Programme Coordinator and Research officer SIE, Natasha Mir said that it was obligatory for them (SIE) to conduct such programmes given the fact that the student community was the most vulnerable group who lost their lives in road accidents. "State Institute of Education is taking up this initiative for the first time for the safety of our youngsters and will continue to conduct these programmes in future as well," Natasha said.
Principal SIE Kashmir, Suraya Akther in her speech also emphasized on the need of implementation of the Road Safety Rules and creating awareness among the masses particularly among students.
The SIE staff has extended their gratitude to Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP), Traffic and Regional Transport Officer (RTO) for their support to conduct the training programme.
