ITP launches awareness programme for children

ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) have launched ‘Kids Traffic Awareness Programme’, giving status of ambassadors of the force to schoolchildren and authorising them to issue verbal warning over violation of traffic rules by road users. AIG (Operations) Sultan Azam Temuri on Saturday formally inaugurated this programme at the Police Lines Headquarters, which was attended by students of various schools of the twin cities. The purpose of this programme is to provide awareness about traffic rules among the schoolchildren and educate them about safe road environment in the city. The children were imparted education about traffic laws in ‘Theme Park’ of the headquarters, and also acquainted with road sense by providing them an opportunity to drive bicycles on the roads of the park. The children successfully competing the test were appointed ambassadors of the ITP and were given authority to issue verbal warning to those violating traffic rules on the roads. The children can warn those involved in rash driving, violating traffic signals, using mobile phones and not fastening their seat belts during driving, parking vehicles on zebra crossing and in no-parking areas, and those motorcyclists driving bikes without helmets. This campaign will help inculcate better traffic sense among children so that they can become responsible citizens in the future and set good examples for their families and the people in their surroundings.  On the occasion, Sultan Temuri also distributed cards of Kids Traffic Awareness Programme among the schoolchildren. The cards were issued by the SSP (traffic).
