Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India and Delhi Traffic Police kick start Road Safety Summer Camp for college students of Delhi
New Delhi: Striving to bring a positive behavioural change amongst the youth towards road safety, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) in association with Delhi Traffic Police today announced the commencement of Road Safety Summer Camp for college students at Traffic Training Park, Baba Kharak Singh Road, New Delhi.
The Road Safety Summer Camp was inaugurated by Sh. Ranjeet Singh (In-charge, Traffic Training Park, Baba Kharak Singh Road, New Delhi) in the presence of dignitaries from Delhi Police, Government bodies & HMSI.
The 10-days Road Safety Summer Camp between 6 June to 17 June 2022 is an interactive learning program targeted at college students aged 17-20 years. During this camp, students will be educated on road rules and traffic by HMSI’s skilled safety instructors. The camp will also be a secure and fun learning platform where students will learn about safety measures like self-defence, disaster management, fire safety and participate in quiz competition, slogan writing or poster making competition.
Speaking on importance of road safety awareness, Mr. Prabhu Nagaraj, Operating Officer, Brand & Communication, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India said, “As today’s road users and future riders, it is essential for youngsters to have a holistic awareness about road safety. Sensitization towards traffic rules and safety at an early age will shape them as change agents of tomorrow. Kickstarting an engaging summer break with safety training camps, HMSI and Delhi Traffic Police have joined hands to educate Delhi’s young college students on important aspects of road safety. This will not only instil a responsible road behaviour among them but will also play a vital role in spreading the road safety message to society at large.”
