NATIONAL ROAD SAFETY WEEK
11 Jan 2022, Kishtwar
Kishtwar is connected to villages and towns in area by narrow roads. The area has seen a rise in road accidents causing avoidable fatal casualties and injuries. Lack of knowledge of traffic rules amongst local population, specially the students and youth is the major cause if such accidents. With an aim to spread awareness on road safety and traffic rules, the Indian Army organised an awareness campaign at Dul. The event was aimed at raising public awareness about traffic rules to re reduce causalities due to road accidents. During the campaign, the attendees were informed about importance of following traffic rules on road, wearing helmets while driving and following speed limits. The campaign was attended by 45 locals including Students, youth, and children.
