In India, about 1.4 lakh persons are killed in road crashes every year, while many more get injured and disabled for life. Youth in the age group of 15 to 24 years comprise 33% of the total fatalities. NK Bagrodia Public School during the Road Safety Day created awareness about various causes of road accidents and measures to prevent them. These were highlighted by organizing various activities with students, drivers and all other road users. The students of different classes and levels participated in various activities like collage making on traffic signs and symbols, role play, power point presentation on traffic rules and regulations, article writing on pros and cons of fines imposed on breaking traffic rules. This enables the participants to know about the road safety rules and regulations. All the participants were enthusiastic while doing various activities. Road Safety Day was celebrated with a great belief that not only social inclusiveness will be the corporate mantra for going ahead, but as a responsible member, we have always incorporated sensitivity towards social aspects in all our activities.
