Gurgaon Traffic Police organizes 24th Road Safety Week, distributes roses among people
Gurgaon Traffic Police organized the 24th Road Safety Week that took off on Jan 6 last week and concluded with a number of plans for the better future of the city. The safety week received very positive response from participants, including the school kids who were part of the programme.

DURING THE 24th Road Safety Week, Gurgaon Traffic Police (GTP) organized a camp at DCP Traffic Office, Sec-51, Gurgaon on 6th Jan. Yogender Dhankar, head of the Aravali Institute of Driving, who detailed driving etiquettes, addressed the camp.

The entire traffic staff, RSO Gurgaon team and various school bus drivers and conductors from Sri Ram School, DAV school and various other schools, with a total gathering of more than 350 people also attended the camp.

Addressing the audience, he emphasized on the importance of following important driving tips. Further, along with the training lessons, there was a free health check-up camp organized. Various doctors were present which include Dr. Suresh from Muskaan Dental Clinic, for dental check-up; Dr. Sachdeva, Eye Care World, for Eye check-up and Dr. Arun, General Physician from Civil hospital.

The next day, the GTP organized a seminar at Government Sr. Sec. School, Pachgaon, which was attended by RSO Gurgaon team, SHO P.S. Bilaspur, SHO TPS Manesar and the school children. Mr. Dhankar addressed this seminar as well to detail traffic rules.

"The session was very well received by the children and all others and was highly educating and interactive," said ACP Traffic, Ravinder Tomar who also addressed the children regarding traffic rules.

People from Gurgaon praised the step of Gurgaon Traffic Police and also suggested that these types of camps must create value and that could only happen when they are organised properly and include two-way communication.

Karan Singh said: "Good job by GTP. But if we want to communicate with someone, there can be two ways; first, we can go to their level and understand what they feel. Secondly, we can take them up to our level to make them understand what we believe. By these two ways, we can transmit our thoughts to the other side. Most of the times what happens is that whatever was tried to communicate or information given is mostly a waste of time and resources."

He also believed that one should wait to organise these camps until they are confident about their success. "If we are not able to organize these camps properly than we should wait till the time we are able to do that in a proper way. My intentions are not to de-moralize the Gurgaon Traffic Police. I think it could be much better if it is done properly," he added.

During the camp, GTP also distributed roses among the daily commuters of Gurgaon and made them aware of the importance of following traffic rules like wearing seat belts, not using mobile phones while driving and not to drink and drive.
