Traffic police to use video messages for awareness
New Delhi: The Delhi Police will be using video messages to create awareness among commuters regarding traffic rules and regulations. The law enforcement agency claimed that the new initiative is a part of their road safety campaign.
The idea started from the Facebook page of Assistant Sub Inspector Rambir, deployed in Delhi Traffic Police (DTP), where anyone can see several videos in which he creates awareness regarding traffic rules among the commuters and also among the children. In one such video tweeted from the official handle of Delhi Traffic Police, it can be seen that the policeman is talking about the Motor Vehicle Act.
In the video which is around 1.02-minute long, the police personnel said that after the red-light, vehicles should halt before stop line. "If you cross the line, it is the violation of MV Act," said the personnel in the video.
According to police, the video messages are an effective means to educate people regarding traffic rules. Talking to the Millennium Post, Joint Commissioner of Police (Traffic) Alok Kumar said that they always create awareness regarding traffic safety through different modes including social media. "The video messages are a part of our road safety campaign," said Joint CP Alok Kumar.
When asked more traffic police personnel will be involved in the initiative, the Joint CP said that they are looking into it.
