BANDIPORA, FEBRUARY 09: In view of 30th Road Safety Week which is being celebrated from 4th February to 10th February, an awareness-cum-medical camp was organised by ARTO Bandipora and District Legal Service Authority at District Court Complex Bandipora.
Secretary District Legal Services Authority Bandipora, Iqbal Ahmad Akhoon, ARTO Bandipora Mouazam Ali and other senior officers were present on the occasion while a large number of transporters and drivers also attended the camp.
During the camp, experts sensitized the participants about road safety rules and appealed them to follow the rules for their own safety. They said the accidents can be minimized if everyone follows road safety rules. Officials said most of the accidents in contemporary times happen either because of the use of cell phones during driving or violating other rules on the road.
Officials said the aim of celebrating the week is to sensitize the people especially the drivers about road safety so that people drive sensibly on roads and follow traffic norms so that accidents are minimized. They said it is a collective responsibility to encourage others to follow safety rules while driving.
A medical camp was also organised on the occasion wherein a team of doctors from DH Bandipora conducted a check-up of drivers and delivered first aid.
