Mysuru: The city on Saturday got its second traffic awareness centre on the premises of Krishnaraja traffic police station on JLB road.

The centre will also be utilised to create awareness for vehicle users caught riding or driving under the influence of alcohol.
Commissioner of police K T Balakrishna inaugurated the centre. He said the facility will be used to educate both government and private school children about road safety. Videos will be screened to create awareness and interactive sessions will be conducted. All traffic devices and sign boards have been displayed so that participants become aware and follow road rules.
This apart, the facility will also be utilised to conduct classes for people caught driving vehicles after consuming alcohol. Videos will be screened about the dangers of violating rules and driving under the influence of alcohol, he said.
