The UP Traffic Police invites you to join the ‘Responsible School’ Initiative.
We have all observed the traffic jams and chaos outside many schools at the times of their closing, every day. It is not only troublesome for the young children and their parents, but also to all road users passing by these schools. Is it not our responsibility to do something about it? Can we really do something about this?
The Traffic Police invites all schools to join the ‘Responsible School’ Initiative to collaborate with local Traffic Police.
By joining this initiative, the Schools will commit themselves to the following:
The traffic police will assist the school authorities in identification and earmarking of parking spaces. They will also assist in enforcement during the transition period. They will assist in capacity building of school student volunteers. They will also carry out traffic education and awareness programs in the school.
The program will inculcate a sense of being disciplined and responsible not only in students, but also their parents, vehicle drivers, school teachers and staff members. Student volunteers will also learn camaraderie, team building and leadership.
The program will also lead to orderly traffic movement outside a ‘responsible school’, leading to convenient movement for students, parents, drivers of school children’s vehicles, and also all other road users.
