Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India’s (HMSI) National Road Safety Awareness Campaign has a new destination. The initiative, this time, went to Chittorgarh in Rajasthan. The three-day camp at Calibre Academy Senior Secondary School saw the participation of over 2,700 students and staff members. They all got to learn a lot and imbibed safe riding practices.
HMSI’s road safety instructors made use of age-appropriate road safety learning programs. This aims to enhance the retention of road safety habits among all. Children of today are the road safety ambassadors for tomorrow. Thus it is imperative to impart the proper knowledge of road safety at this age. This will develop their mind and help them become responsible road users in the days to come. As a part of this National Road Safety Campaign, Honda intends to create road safety awareness across the country.
Key Highlights Of HMSI National Road Safety Awareness Campaign
HMSI utilized specially trained road safety instructors and educated the 5 to 10 years olds. The main teaching topics included the do’s and don’ts while commuting on a school bus and cycling. The 11 – 12 years old, learned how to ride their bicycle safely, with proper safety gear on roads. To make this learning more practical and fun, the kids also got hands-on learning experience on the specially imported CRF50 motorcycles.
Safety riding theory sessions for the 13 to 17 years old included road rules and regulations, road signs and markings, driver’s duties on the road, riding gear and posture explanation, and safe riding etiquette. Current license holders like school staff members tested and honed their learnings through theoretical as well as practical training on a two-wheeler. To ensure maximum participation of the young students, HMSI conducted fun educational activities like road safety games and quizzes regularly.
