Bengaluru: The Bengaluru Traffic Police have trained over 1.5 lakh students as part of a week-long road safety campaign under the Students Association for Road Safety (SARS) program. Originally targeting 1 lakh students over five days, the initiative aimed to impart knowledge about safe road etiquette and the importance of respecting traffic rules. Conducted from June 24 to 28, the campaign reached students at 566 educational institutions through interactive sessions, workshops, and practical demonstrations.

Topics covered included safe helmet and seat belt usage, pedestrian safety, and the dangers of distracted driving. Seasoned traffic officers led the presentations and practical demonstrations, which included proper use of zebra crossings and understanding traffic signals.

The drive aims to raise awareness among students, a crucial need given that several road accidents involve young pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists.
