KAKKANAD: If you maintain a high standard while driving in the district by following all the traffic rules you could win a handful of gifts as the Motor Vehicle Department (MVD) is planning to create awareness among the public by rewarding the best drivers with gifts.
As part of the initiative, the MVD will deploy officials to monitor the traffic in the district and to select the best drivers.The MVD’s ‘gift’ initiative is mainly aimed at encouraging four-wheeler, three-wheeler and two-wheeler drivers to follow traffic rules.
“The cause of the majority of the accidents is irresponsible driving. Though there are many drivers who follow all the traffic rules nobody has ever come forward to encourage them. Through this initiative, we are trying to encourage them to follow the traffic rules during the rest of their lives. We will also ask them to create awareness among their friends and relatives on traffic laws,” said Motor Vehicle Inspector Noufal A.
Earlier, the Department had launched the ‘gift’ project in Thiruvananthapuram and Kozhikode, which drew overwhelming response from the public.
The programme will be officially inaugurated by Transport Commissioner R Sreelekha at Kumbalam on Friday. Malayalam film personalities Major Ravi and Amala paul will be the chief guests of the programme.
