Awareness on road safety imparted

POONCH: Army organised an awareness lecture on "Road Safety" at Dara Dullian, Poonch District.

There has been a substantial increase in the vehicular traffic in the recent years, however due to the lack of knowledge about traffic rules amongst local population, especially the students, the same has resulted in an increase in the number of road accidents causing large number of avoidable fatalities and serious injuries.

The students, youth and villagers of Dara Dullian and adjoining villages attended the lecture with great zeal and enthusiasm. During the lecture, the audience were informed that road traffic accidents are one of the world's biggest hazards which can be prevented only by exercising caution and by strictly following the traffic rules and safety measures.

The students were educated to use helmets, seat-belts, avoid using mobile phones while driving and restrain from driving if drunk. The lecture was conducted as an interactive session wherein the queries raised by the audience were addressed.
