Agroup of IT professionals from the city will set out on a road trip on March 4 to explore the state and spread the message on road safety among the public.
The team includes Akhil Vijayan, Jose George, Jithin Augustine, Prasanth S and Ajit Â - all employees of IBS Software Service in Technopark. The expedition, in a car decorated with banners and posters on road safety, will set out from Thiruvananthapuram and tour all the 14 districts by March 7.Elementary safety requirements such as wearing helmets and seat belts are also part of the awareness campaign. Although the team initially planned an all-India tour, they finally decided to cover the home state first.
The team members will interact with people on the way. The techies will ask questions related to road safety to the people and the interaction will be videographed. Cards and notices which contain messages such as ‘Wear Seat Belt’ and ‘Don’t Mix Drink With Drive’ will be distributed to people.
