National Road Safety Program 12th to 19th January, 2016

Be the change you want to see in the world. Don't just complain, take control. And so, the student volunteers from Chetana's Institute of Management & Research did just that!!

The ever increasing traffic at the Bandra Kherwadi junction is creating bottle neck on the Western Express Highway. This is creating traffic jam throughout the entire Highway, right up to Dahisar toll, thus inconveniencing thousands of commuters. Hence, students of Chetana’s Institute of Management & Research, Bandra (East) are extending their help to the RTO vide the Traffic Police’s ‘Traffic Monitoring & National Road Safety Program’ starting from the 12th to the 19th of January 2016 along with Fulora Foundation.

The event commenced on Tuesday 12th January, 2016 at Chetana’s auditorium. Present at the event, to effectively guide the students to understand present traffic conditions through a PowerPoint presentation were; Inspector Motor Vehicle – Mr. Bharat Jadhav, Deputy RTO – Mr. Metrewar Sanjay and Deputy RTO – Mr. Sanjay Sasane. They had also arranged for a street play act for better comprehension of the students, about the need of the hour with regard to traffic management. Social Activist & Urban Planner – Mr. Mayank Gandhi and Executive Trustee, Fulora Foundation – Mr. Arun Sabnis who were also a part of the event, enlightened the students with their insights regarding the said issue.

After the commencement of the event, the entire mob of student volunteers was taken over to the Kherwadi Junction for some real action, where they spread awareness about the traffic rules as well as road safety & save driving rules through message placards & jackets.

This drive will strive to achieve a convenient ‘citizen – police interaction’, through which enquiries relating to ‘traffic management’ will be handled.

The activity was carried on up to the 19th of January 2016 at Kherwadi junction, Bandra (E) as well as at Vakola, Santacruz (E).

Even other institutes were inspired by this initiative and showed interest to be a part of it. And hence, Patuck-Gala College of Commerce & Management also joined in for the ‘Road Safety’ drive.
