Over 150 two wheeler riders, wearing helmets, rallied from Ashok Pillar to the Kathipara Junction and back to create awareness on the use of helmets on Tuesday. The Kingmakers Charitable Trust as part of the 25th year of Road Safety Week celebrations organised the programme with an aim to promote road safety among two-wheeler users.

R Dinakaran, Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic), and S Lakshmi, Deputy Commissioner, flagged off the drive. Handbills propagating road safety were also distributed by volunteers of the Trust.  According to S Rajasekar, chairman and managing director of the Trust, these road safety programmes are organised under the theme ‘My country, my people’.

“Everyone should follow traffic rules, wear helmets and avoid cell phones while driving,” said Rajasekar. An oath to abide by the traffic rules was taken by persons gathered at the start of the rally, led by the Joint Commissioner. Kingmakers Charitable Trust has been undertaking a series of initiatives including distribution of free helmets over the past month in commemoration of Road Safety Week.
