The Motor Vehicles Department will launch an organisation titled ‘Trauma Care and Road Safety Utility Services in Thiruvananthapuram (TRUST)’ to reduce the death rate in road accidents. Transport Minister Aryadan Mohammed will launch the organisation on November 5.

 In a statement here on Tuesday, Transport Commissioner Rishi Raj Singh said that road accidents claimed 4286 lives in state last year. “The accident rate can be reduced considerably if the victims are taken to the hospital in one hour, which is called golden hour” the statement said.

 A study by the All-India Road Safety Council says 74 per cent of the country’s population are reluctant to come to the rescue of victims. The organisation is to conduct awareness on the importance of timely rescue, he said.

 The public can become a member of TRUST by paying Rs 100. The volunteers will be given a day’s training in road safety, leadership skills and first aid. The first training class for volunteers will be held at Police Training College, Thycaud, here. The membership fees is Rs 100. Those interested to attend the class can register with the Transport Commissioner’s office.

 For details, contact Assistant Transport Commissioner P A Sathyan (8547639100), Motor Vehicle Inspectors Brinda Sanil (9447310544) and S Mahesh (8547639099).
