Commenting on IRSC’s initiative Mr. Rajeev Kapur said “Initiatives like these are the need of the hour. More than 1 million people are dying in India in road accidents because of not taking Road Safety measures & use of the fake ISI helmets. Such mishaps cause massive economic hardship and emotional suffering to families. There is a pressing need to make our roads safer as the loss of lives and limbs cannot be accepted as the price of mobility. This Road Safety Campaign by Indian Road Safety Campaign (IRSC) will be beneficial for our Country and aware people to take safety measures while riding or driving. Initiatives like this will not only save many lives but will also lead the Government to take strict action against this."
As members of this society, we need to realize this criticality of this problem and come together to make road safety a social movement.
It has been encouraging to see Honourable Prime Minister Modi Ji speak about the Road safety Campaign on Mann ki Baat recently inviting people to write catchy slogans on Road Safety and win cash prizes.‘
Many contests are organized to spread awareness regarding road safety measures, instill the habit of following traffic rules and implement the safety measures learned about. Prominent industry experts have been invited to judge competitions held by the IRSC.
