Schoolkids felicitate traffic cops

As many as 30 traffic police constables were felicitated during the Traffic Police Day celebration at the traffic police headquarters here on Tuesday.

Police Commissioner M N Reddi praised the efforts of Children’s Movement for Civic Awareness, an NGO which has been organising Traffic Police Day for the last 10 years.

“The work of the traffic police is to guide road users. But people blame them for traffic problems. They should remember that the problems faced by them on the roads are not created by the cops. The traffic police only help solve the problem created due to various reasons. Children thanking the traffic police brings a smile on their faces. It is a pleasure to see young citizens recognise the traffic police and what they do for us,” Reddi said.

‘Thank you’ cards

Around 50 children from various schools across the City presented ‘Thank You’ cards and flowers to the traffic policemen.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) B Dayananda said that another initiative, Student Association for Road Safety, was covering more schools. “A team of traffic policemen has been visiting schools spreading awareness about traffic rules. We believe it is good to catch future citizens young to inculcate traffic discipline in them,” he said.

Former State DG&IGP Ajai Kumar Singh recalled how the initiative was started during his tenure as the City police commissioner. Now a trustee of Children’s Movement for Civic Awareness, Singh said traffic management in Bengaluru was one of the best in the country.

Snooker champion Pankaj Advani and environmentalist Yellappa Reddy were present.
