MUSSOORIE, 4 Dec: The organisation, Maatr Shakti, in collaboration with the Traffic Police, made the students aware of road safety as well as traffic rules at a seminar organised in MPG College, here. On the occasion, traffic police Inspector Rajpal Rawat gave a message to the students to wear helmets while driving two-wheelers, seat belts in cars and to get driver’s licences made. By following traffic rules, he said, accidents could be reduced drastically. They should also inform the people around them about the traffic rules and pay special attention to the traffic signals while walking on the road. On the occasion, posters, pamphlets and other promotional material related to traffic rules were also distributed by the traffic police. Inspector Rawat said that, recently, the Supreme Court had issued guidelines that those who helped in the event of any accident would not have to face any kind of legal problems. The Motor Vehicle Act 2019 had come into force and those who broke traffic rules would have to face heavy fines. The purpose of these rules was not to spread the fear of traffic rules in the people, but to make them aware of the Act. Maatr Shakti member Renu Jain, Smriti Hari, Babita Goyal and MPG College Students’ Union President Prince Panwar also urged students to follow the traffic rules. Also present on the occasion were SI Sanjeev Tyagi, Constable Balbir Singh, Principal Dr SP Joshi, Amitabh Joshi, Ved Prakash Joshi, ML Upadhyay, Imran Khan, Anil, Naveen Shah, Meghna, Nikhil Bahadur, Manish Nautiyal, Amit Panwar, teachers along with other employees of the college.
