SIF supported the Mumbai Traffic Police in spreading awareness on traffic rules during the Road Safety Fortnight in January, 2015.
Dedicated to empowering kids with the right knowledge to instil responsibility, SIF educated kids from over 100 schools on traffic rules and road safety measures. Young citizens from 35 schools came out on the streets with SIF volunteers to convince people to obey traffic signals, wear helmets, fasten seat belts, use safe sidewalks and subways and avoid using phones while driving. Human chains of kids holding banners compelled passersby to stop for some interesting traffic education.
Citizens’ response to the instructing children was prompt and they seemed happy to obey these young champions for the cause.
