The traffic park which had remained unused for nearly a decade in front of the City Police Commissioner’s office is being refurbished for conducting regular safety awareness programmes for high school students.

The Students Association for Road Safety involving 24 high schools has been formed by the city police.

These children will be taken in batches to the traffic park every Saturday and taught traffic rules and regulations for about 90 minutes. Traffic police experts will instruct them.

There will be paths with traffic indicators, signal lights and ways of instructing students about the importance of wearing helmets, the danger of using mobile phones while driving, the nuisance of shrill horns, rash driving and other issues.

Police are mulling over providing bicycles in the park to give children a live demonstration as it will be more hands on. Children will be given a free 30-page handbook on traffic rules, regulations, signs and boards as part of the programme.

Although the traffic park was opened nearly a decade ago, it remained unused. Seeing the pathetic state of the park, City Police Commissioner M A Saleem took steps to renovate it. The park is being beautified by the horticulture authorities of the City Corporation.
