PROBLEM

The population of all major cities of Maharashtra has increased significantly. And it is increasing day by day. Also, many people from rural areas of Maharashtra are migrating to urban areas for education and employment.

For the above reasons traffic congestion in big cities has become a major concern. Also, the drivers do not have sufficient scientific knowledge and understanding of the traffic rules.

SOLUTION

Recognizing this, Sakal Social Foundation started Road Safety Week - Initiative from 2014 aimed towards public awareness about the traffic rules in major cities and Major congested areas of Maharashtra. Under the above program, public awareness about traffic rules is being done for seven consecutive days by showing banner, poster, brochures regarding traffic rules with the help of volunteers over the total of 25 traffic signals of large traffic in selected cities.

IMPACT

Because of the above initiatives , there has been a lot of awareness about traffic rules among the majority of peoples. This activity is organized only once a year. The implementing cost of Road Safety Week initiative is Rs. 3 lakh 50 thousand rupees in a one city. There is a need for financial help to organize the above activities in every city of Maharashtra.
