With the increase in road accidents in the city, the Jagriti Leela Memorial Foundation organized a motorbike rally in association with the Chetu Foundation (the CSR arm of software company Chetu) and Noida Traffic Police to encourage people to follow traffic rules and avoid reckless driving.
The rally aimed to guide commuters about new traffic rules, regulations, and the Challan System to increase public safety and reduce commotion on roads.
Featuring scores of masked youths carrying banners that promote traffic safety initiatives, the bike rally was hosted at the Police Chowki, opposite GIP Mall, Noida at 11 am. Officials that attended the show promoted the importance of wearing helmets when riding motorcycles, not jumping signals nor excessive speeding, and wearing a mask to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
“People should not travel without a mask, should maintain social distancing and carry sanitization kits to curb the spread of COVID-19, said Ravinder Vasisht, Traffic Incharge, Gautam Buddh Nagar. “Aside from COVID, keep a check on your vehicle to reduce stress on the environment,” he added.
Kummu Joshi Bhatnagar, Founder Jagriti Leela Memorial Foundation added, “It’s not just the road but also the air that we breathe that is not safe. Noida’s air quality continues to deteriorate at a rapid rate and without strict regulation, we will leave our future in question. We do not need another pandemic to clean up our air.” With its emphasis on both public health and safety, as well as environmental sustainability, the rally attracted the interest of other local charities looking to lend their resources and support.
“Promoting the health and safety of our local communities is a key tenet of the Chetu Foundation, and we are honored to participate in this event,” said Saurabh Pawar, Director of Human Resources at Chetu. “As members of the community, we believe that education is the key to reducing traffic accidents and protecting our environment.”
Concluding the rally, law enforcement officials confirmed they will intensively check for traffic violations and will continue to impose penalties to encourage safety and compliance to rules and regulations.
