With an aim to create awareness towards road safety, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road and Mira-Bhayander Traffic Police jointly organized multiple activities to highlight the importance of road safety.
Road safety is a prime concern as millions of people die in road accidents. In majority of cases, accidents happen due to carelessness or lack of road safety measures. Many lives can be saved and injuries prevented by spreading road safety awareness on speeding, drinking and driving, appropriate use of seatbelts, and wearing helmets, mobile usage etc. Thus, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road and Mira-Bhayander Traffic Police came up with unique initiatives to spread public awareness.
Dr. Pankaj Dhamija, Centre Head, Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road said, “Road safety is neglected by people and they land in trouble. A large number of families have to bear the burden of the loss of their loved ones due to road accidents. It is need of the hour to educate people regarding road safety rules.
Mira-Bhayander Traffic Police received stretchers from Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road which will be used for emergencies at accident-prone zones. Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road & Mira-Bhayander Traffic Police distributed pamphlets, stickers which had road safety messages to vehicle drivers including auto rickshaw drivers, motorcyclists, etc.
A traffic signal campaign was organized wherein volunteers from the Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road along with Traffic Police displayed placards of road safety messages like ‘wear helmet’, ‘don’t drink and drive, ‘no phone while driving, and ‘follow traffic rule’, at prominent signals like Kashimira, Silver Park, S.K. Stone, Golden Nest, Maxus Mall etc. They also distributed Emergency Pocket Booklet for general public during the awareness campaign.
“We are happy that Wockhardt Hospitals, Mira Road joined hands with us for this great initiative. We hope to spread the message of road safety as much as we can and urge people to adhere to all the traffic rules and regulations. We will ensure a safe journey for all those who travel by road,” concluded Traffic Police Mira Bhayander .
