Diageo India and Network18 acknowledged the contribution of Mumbai Traffic Police with a #ThankYouPolice campaign as part of Road Safety Week, for working tirelessly towards the safety of citizens, better traffic management and keeping law and order in check.
In order to honour Mumbai Traffic Police, Diageo and Network18 put up a Thank You Police installation at the Bandstand Promenade for pedestrians, students and people living in the neighbourhood to take cognizance of the police’s efforts to keep the city streets safe. The installation will be kept at the promenade till the end of the month.
The ‘Road Safety Week’ was observed on January 11-17.
Anil Parab, Minister of Transport and Parliamentary Affairs, Government of Maharashtra, and actor Sumeet Raghavan unveiled the installation that showcases the hat of a Mumbai Police officer.
Parab lauded the efforts of Mumbai Police and its traffic department for maintaining traffic discipline and ensuring the smooth flow of traffic. He said, “I welcome the initiative of Diageo and Network18 as the head of the department. The way the traffic problems of the city is on the rise, it is nice to know that institutions like them are there to appreciate the work of Mumbai Traffic Police. It is not an easy task to maintain traffic discipline and unclog the roads for the smooth flow of traffic. However, the Mumbai Police have put in their best foot forward to ensure smooth flow. I welcome the initiative to recognise the contributions of the Mumbai Traffic police.”
Actor Raghavan mentioned there should be self-discipline among the citizens so that there is no instance of violation of traffic rules. “We should obey the rules and adhere to all the traffic regulations. We are like school kids and when we don’t have a class teacher in the room, we create a ruckus. Similar, is the situation when we are on the road. When we see the red light at the signal, we should stop, but we feel it is okay to break the law. Now with the cameras, there is a sense of fear instilled by the Mumbai Traffic Police. We shouldn’t be worried about the camera or the police, we as citizens should discipline ourselves. The kind of work the Mumbai Police and the Mumbai Traffic Police is doing is humungous and a big salute to their efforts.”Source: Best Media Info
