Road Safety education project conducted as part of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) by Abertis India.
Road safety education Project was carried out at 36 villages located nearby Raikal Toll Plaza in Ranga Reddy district of Telangana State in India as in initiative under the Corporate Social Responsibility programme. The project was executed in association with Rural development Trust (RDT) which was founded by Mr. Vincent Ferrer and his work partner Mrs. Anne Ferrer in the year 1969 at Ananthapuram, Rayalaseema region of Andhra Pradesh.
The main objective of this project was to spread awareness and reduce road accidents amongst the general public, students, villagers and vehicle users and be successful in saving lives of several citizens. The total duration of the project was for around four months starting from 25th January 2019 to 17th May 2019.
List of activities conducted during the project are
• Conducted awareness campaigns in 36 villages, secondary schools and industrial areas around Raikal Toll plaza in Ranga Reddy district.
• Conducted essay writing/picture painting competitions to the students and distributed prizes for the performers.
• Wall paintings in different places in 36 villages
• Providing breath analysers with printers to the traffic police.
• Erection of hoardings and sign boards in the crucial locations
• Distribution of pamphlets in the villages as well as in the Toll plaza.
Conclave on CSR Road Safety Project was conducted on 13th March, 2019 at JEPL Raikal Toll Plaza in presence of Mr. Josep Quiles - CEO of Abertis India, Traffic Inspector of Raikal region - Mr. S Sunil, Vincente Ferrer RDT officials, Zilla Parishad and Raikal Village High School teachers and children and JEPL staff.
The dignitaries expressed their concerns on road accidents, emphasized the importance of road safety, ways of mitigation, distributed pamphlets and also presented breathe analyzers to Mr. S Sunil as part of this Project. Awards were distributed on this occasion to the winners of essay writing and painting competitions conducted in various schools on road safety topic.
Though the governments have taken various preventive measures to ensure the safety of the citizens using road, there is still a need for stringent implementation of measures or rules. It is collective effort which calls for fulfilling of social responsibility. Hopefully, this initiative has attained its aim in spreading awareness and educating people at root level. “If we join hands, we can transform this world”.
