‘School Safety Zone programme’ by Greater Chennai Traffic Police

The parents and teachers will also be involved in the School Safety Zone programme. Under this initiative, along with students, teachers and parents will also be engaged in traffic regulation duties around the schools.
“Educating children, parents and teachers on the road safety aspects will not only protect them from potential hazards but also foster responsible attitude and positive outlook towards traffic rules,” reads a statement issued by the police.

Launched on pilot basis

As of now the programme will be implemented on a pilot basis at St Mary’s Higher Secondary School in Parrys, Kendriya Vidhyalaya, IIT Campus in Guindy, SBOA Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Anna Nagar and Vidhyodaya school.
If the project tastes success in the abovementioned institutes, then it will be extended to all the schools in Chennai city with an objective to create a mega school safety zone for bringing a paradigm shift in road safety.

Volunteers to be trained by the Police

Students will receive training from master trainers belonging to the police department on traffic rules, traffic regulation skills, pedestrian safety, safe road crossing, bicycle safety, understanding traffic signs and signals. Students, teachers and parents will also be made aware about safe driving and its necessity. Road Safety Patrol cadets will assist the volunteers to ensure safe commute of the students to school and while leaving school in morning and afternoon respectively.
