Road Safety Awareness Campaign:
It's crucial to remind people to obey traffic laws and drive safely when they're on the road. The number of road accidents is increasing every day, and the only way to prevent them is to raise awareness about the significance of driving safely, wearing helmets, and adhering to the standards set forth by the Departments of Traffic and Transportation.
On the 19th of February 2021, the National Service Scheme of Justice Basheer Ahmed Sayeed College for Women held a "Road Safety Awareness Campaign" near our college's campus to raise awareness of the importance of driving safely. The campaign drew a total of 35 students who actively participated. The students created posters and distributed flyers about safety precautions to take while on the road, pamphlets were given out to the public to emphasize on the importance of wearing helmets and traveling safely.
