To create awareness about traffic rules, police came up with a unique campaign in the city on Tuesday.

They gave roses to traffic violators and pasted stickers on their vehicles with the message 'I Follow Traffic Rules, We All Follow Traffic Rules'.

Another unique message was a man dressed up as Yamaraj — the god of death — who intercepted motorists and warned them of visiting their homes if they violated traffic rules.

A police officer from the Mico Layout traffic police limits said: "As apart of road safety month in July we are creating various awareness programmes daily."

The traffic police also conducted an awareness campaign in schools and colleges across the city.

According to the data by the traffic police till June-end this year, 2,336 accidents have been reported, of which 330 were fatal, 338 killed on the city roads in accidents.
