    Jamshedpur : As a part of Parivartan, a nine-day traffic campaign organised by district police in association with Jamshedpur Diocesan Education Centre, an awareness programme was organized at the Chamber Bhawan in Bistupur on Tuesday.

    Along with the city SP Karthik S and Dhalbhum SDO, Prem Ranjan, the programme was attended by various trade outfits including Singhbhum Chamber of Commerce and Industry ( SCCI), Jamshedpur Distributors Association, Jamshedpur Transport Welfare Association, Singhbhum Merchant Dealers Association and Jamshedpur Chemist and Druggist Association.

    “The programme was fruitful and we have decided to issue posters and pamphlets highlighting traffic rules to be followed on road. All the retail outlets and shops will put the posters. The idea is to create a mass awareness on traffic rules,” said Suresh Sonthalia, president of SCCI.

    City SP Karthik S welcomed the initiative of the trade bodies. ” We want to make Jamshedpur safe. The nine-day campaign launched on September 11 aims at fulfilling this objective. We are getting a good response for such a campaign introduced for the first time in the steel city,” said Kartik S.

    In view of rising cases of road mishaps in Jamshedpur, East Singhbhum district police launched the drive. The drive aims at educating the citizens. The city police have decided to hit the streets by spreading road safety messages by putting up advertisements at important squares, organizing nukkad nataks and host of other events.

    During the campaign traffic constables after catching violators, mainly helmetless riders and drivers without seat belts, will request them to wear helmets and follow traffic safety rules for their own safety and for their family.

    It is an ambitious initiative and we want to make people see that they are the sufferers of traffic violations. We will organize workshops put up large hoardings at important squares and in front of shopping complexes, schools and colleges in the city. We hope this will also catch the attention of youngsters who are normally accused of rash driving the most,” said Karthik S, city SP.

    He said that making people understand the importance of traffic rules is a major challenge which needs to be checked immediately. The officer said that parents must cooperate with the traffic authorities in order to ensure violation-free passage of traffic in the city.
