Here are a few tips to ensure road safety for students:

  1. Educate your wards to avoid footboard travel. Sensitise them that being cool is not putting safety at stake.
  2. Do not let them travel in motor vehicles without a license
  3. Be their example by crossing only on zebra-crossing and adhering to traffic signals while travelling with them. They would spontaneously pick up the good habit.
  4. Hone their observation skills by making them look at both sides of the road while crossing each time they accompany you.
  5. Encourage them to take the assistance of traffic police or elders while crossing the road in your absence.
  6. Teach them about the functions of horn and head-light so that they are alert to sound and sight.
