In the campaign, the DPO members & CUTS volunteers did aware the drivers about traffic rules by posters & pamphlets provided by traffic department. The drivers or other population motivated to read the rules written on flex developed by CUTS & gave their sign over there declaring the follow of traffic rule so that they can be drive safe.The DPO members spread awareness about the bad effects of not to follow the traffic rules & requested to wear helmets whenever they drive the vehicle & use seatbelt whenever they drive four-wheelers. Almost 500-600 people read the traffic rules & signed over the flex during the program.
