Right to life and safety is a fundamental right of any citizen. This is guaranteed under the constitution of every country in the world including India. Anything, which is hazardous to human, violates the right to life, and road safety is as much on the agenda as any other area, which may be accident-prone.
Road safety does not happen accidentally, but requires deliberate efforts by government and its many partners. Too often, road safety is treated as a transportation issue, not a public health issue, and road traffic injuries are called “accidents”, though most could be prevented. As a result, many countries put far less effort into understanding and preventing road traffic injuries than they do into understanding and preventing diseases that do less harm.
In view of this, Road safety Awareness program in the village Dharmaj, Dist. Anand, and utilize the tools of advocacy and networking to generate awareness on road safety and to bring about policy changes to address some of the burning issues of road safety at Dharmaj Chowkdi. The project involved active participation of students of IIET Dharmaj under guidance of Mr. Dipak Thakor and Mr. Bhavesh Gohil.
