Road safety activists in the state, who would otherwise travel to schools and colleges in an attempt to impart safety awareness, have decided to shift their focus online.
“From September onwards, we will contact schools and organise webinars for students. This can be done only in collaboration with schools and colleges, as a session between regular lectures,” road safety activist and trainer Dilip Naik said.
The programme will cover the road safety situation in the state, the country and across the world, road rules, the main causes of road crashes and how to overcome the problem by proper knowledge of road signs and markings.
“Over 1.5 lakh people die annually die due to road crashes in India. For Goa, the annual number stands at over 300 deaths. The gravity of the situation is that India has just 1% of the world’s vehicles, but nearly 10% of the global road accidents,” Naik said.Source: Times of India
