About Traffic Education Center Initiative.
Traffic education mainly involves making the rules known and motivating each individual to follow the traffic rules and regulations. Traffic rules are meant to encourage a traffic flow which is smooth and as safe as possible.
Violating the Motor vehicle rules result in increased risk to life and property on the roads. Hence, it is incumbent on every person to be aware of the basic motor vehicle rules whether he/she is a driver, passenger or pedestrian. Every time we get behind the wheel of our vehicles, we have the possibility of affecting not only our own lives, but of others as well. Therefore, it’s of utmost importance that we take driving education seriously and do our best to not just keep ourselves safe but also keep the others moving on the road safe.
Enforcement of traffic rules is a police task and enforcement cannot be done without educating and creating awareness amongst the public regarding the same. Hence, traffic education modules are critical for improving road safety.
