Students in Delhi were seen managing traffic as a part of the unique summer camp organized by Delhi Traffic police to inculcate the value of safe driving among youngsters and their parents.
It was a unique morning near India Gate and Rashtrapati Bhavan’s road as students were seen managing the traffic. Around 30 students took part in this campaign by Delhi Traffic Police that aimed to educate students about the traffic rules. As we see there are different kinds of summer camps for extracurricular activities like music, dance, paintings among others but hardly anyone thinks about the road safety. Delhi Traffic Police arranged for this unique summer camps held in four batches. This week-long camp made students aware of many traffic rules and students also tried their hands on managing the traffic.
By doing this, police encouraged the students to convince their parents to follow traffic norms. They also aimed to curb underage driving and prevent from regular accidents. As per a report published in The Times of India Raju Mishra, a Class VII student, said, "When it comes to violating traffic rules, I think not just us, but our parents are at fault, too! My elder brother is just 15 years old, but he has a bike and even takes mom to the temple when she asks him to. He can't have a driving licence, surely. They don't let me ride the bike, par abhi toh woh bhi chhota hai. I won't let him ride now and I will call the traffic police if he does not listen to me."
Such camps in future will make sure that students are educated about the traffic rules since young age and the values are inculcated in childhood so that they also follow it in future.
