SAI International School conducted a Virtual Traffic Awareness and Interaction Programme on Monday, February 8, 2021. Dr. Sudhanshu Sarangi, Commissioner of Police, Bhubaneswar & Cuttack addressed the programme. The Bhubaneswar Police Commissionerate has taken a strong stand against the rampant traffic violations with the launch of a public awareness programme, in regard to wrong side parking, double parking, triple riding and parking in no park zone.
Dr Sarangi highlighted the challenges faced by traffic cops in management of road safety. No matter how many rules may be put in place ultimately the onus lies with each one of us, as we should not only remain accountable but we must pledge to maintain road safety rules as utmost priority. He urges us all to take a pledge, to show concern for others, refrain from unnecessary honking. He was very glad to be able to speak to the children, as they are the future custodians to make sure the traffic rules are followed and obeyed.
Speaking on the occasion Dr. Bijaya Kumar Sahoo, Founder SAI International Education Group, in his own words mentioned ,” we must have a Children Traffic Park should be identified where students can be trained very well on traffic etiquettes.Dr. Sahoo, also suggested if Student -Police concept could be explored further on where students would be provided with badges, and get to learn policing etiquettes and volunteer in clearing a traffic snarls. He wishes that Parent Volunteers for Change in society should be taken up wholeheartedly by parents too, as we can lead by example”.
Awareness workshops on concepts of “golden hour”, first-aid basics and traffic rule enforcement will also be conducted. Overall it was a highly successful event with the floor being opened for question and answer session.
