Udaipur traffic police has finally decided to become even more alert with road safety. The traffic police department has decided to organise road safety weeks throughout the year.
Road safety weeks will be organised every now and then, this was decided by Udaipur traffic police under which awareness campaigns will be the first step. In case any person is found breaking rules after this campaign, strict action will be taken by the traffic police. In case of minors, the parents will also face punishments.
Traffic police has decided to give instructions to youth to follow traffic safety rules. For this purpose, the first step is to create road safety clubs and visit every school for creating awareness. These school children will then become a part of the road safety campaign. Any person breaking rules thereafter will be punished. Driving license of the person breaking rules will be seized, if minors are found breaking rules then their parents will also face punishment.
Parents of minors will be required to fill in a form wherein they will pledge to “Not give vehicles to their minor kids”. Students driving two-wheelers to school must wear helmets. Challans will be made against students breaking rules. Students’ bicycles have to be equipped with reflectors.
Action will be taken against people for over-speeding. People breaking signals will also face punishments. Over-loading of passenger vehicles will also attract punishment. Drunken driving is also a crime and will be dealt with extreme strictness. Talking on mobile phones will also attract penalty.
Road safety clubs will keep a check on the following points:
- Bus drivers must compulsorily wear seat belts
- School buses must follow prescribed rules
- Teachers must also be aware of wearing seat belts/helmets
- Parents will be requested not to allow minor children to drive
- Parking to be organised for vehicles and even cycles
- Strict discipline must be followed while boarding or disembarking from buses
- Continuous feedback will be taken from parents and children regarding school bus drivers/conductors
