Road safety clubs will be installed in Kangra to educate youngsters about traffic rules
To educate youngsters about traffic rules, road safety clubs will be set up in schools and colleges in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh, officials said today.
"The clubs shall have teachers, students, and parents as members and will help in improving road safety and reducing accidents,” he added.
Kumar said the clubs will educate youngsters about the rules of the road especially those who ride without wearing helmets.
Generally, it is seen that youth ride two-wheelers without helmets, which is one of the main reasons for fatal accidents, he said, adding that most of them don't even have a valid driving license.
Principals are instructed to ban the entry of students coming to the institution on a two-wheeler without wearing a helmet. They must also inform the parents, Kumar said.
“The administration is serious about curbing these accidents," he said.
"The 'no helmet, no petrol' scheme is one of the several steps being taken in this direction," he added.
