FIRST STEP TO TRAFFIC SAFETY EDUCATION

  • In the absence of Traffic Safety Education as part of school curriculum we published

    “Your Child’s Road Safety Handbook” to train the next generation on road users.

  • The “Ministry of Road Transport & Highways” directed all STC to use it.

  • The book has been placed in all National and State libraries through RRLF (The nodal agency of Government of India)

  • On recommendation of BPRD, State Police Units have distributed through their “Road safety cells”.

  • Further the multimedia version of the book is being used extensively and is being translated in 6 vernacular languages as it is illustrative in nature, hence easily replicable.
