Traffic Safety Campaign in Graphic Era
Bright Clothes Can Save Lives - SP Traffic
Throwing light on the horrific situation of road accidents SP Traffic Dhirendra Gunjiyal made students aware about road safety today. Mr. Gunjiyal said that in order to increase their visibility on the road students should wear light and bright coloured clothes and follow the traffic rules. In India, a person dies in every 4 minutes in a road accident and a school or college student dies in every 16 minute due to a road accident. These shocking facts were shared by Mr. Gunjiyal during a road safety campaign organized in the Graphic Era University. Mr. Gunjiyal said that it was found that head injury is the main cause of around 1.5 lakhs deaths out of the 5 lakhs injuries due to road accident.
On the occasion of Bones and Joint Day Week, Indian Orthopedic Association and Uttarakhand Police has jointly organized Traffic safety and Drug abuse campaign in Graphic Era where specialists from two prominent private hospitals from the city addressed the students and advised them about the first aid that is to be used in case of an accident.
Based on the statistics, Mr. Gunjiyal said that overtaking wrongly and less visibility during fog and smog are the main cause of road accidents and the reason behind the deaths in these accidents is not using helmets or safety belts. He advised the students to wear white, yellow red coloured and snappy clothes to increase their visibility. He asked the two wheeler riders to use LED strips and bags with LED reflectors to be safe. He also asked the students to write their mobile numbers and blood group on their helmets as a measure for their safety. He also said that pillion riders are three times more prone to danger than the one driving the vehicle, so they should also start wearing helmets.
Mr. Gunjiyal strictly advised not to drive in case one is drunk and requested the government to make more strict laws and take strict actions against those who drink and drive. He said that 60 minutes after any accident is called Golden Hour and any aid given in this period increases the chances of saving the life of a person.
While answering the queries of the students, Mr. Gunjiyal informed the students about the various traffic signs and traffic rules. During this programme, Vice Chancellor of Graphic Era University Dr. L.M.S Palani, Director Infrastructure Dr. Subhash Gupta, senior administrative officers Mr. B.S Negi, Mr.D.S Rawat were present.
