Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan launched a Statewide traffic awareness, road safety and traffic rules adherence campaign from Bhopal on Tuesday. Under the unique campaign, those who adhere to traffic rules will be honoured while violators will be counselled to follow the rules.

Chouhan formally launched the campaign at Roshanpura square and honoured the riders of motorcycles who were wearing helmets and car drivers wearing their seat belts. Those who were not following traffic norms were advised by CM to follow the norms. CM praised Traffic Police for having taken the unique initiative. He said that most road accidents occur due to non-adherence of traffic rules, drunken driving and people not wearing helmets. He appealed to the citizens to wear helmets while riding two-wheelers and advise their children also to wear helmets and follow traffic rules. He said that the life of youth is not just valuable for their families but also for the state. Their security is must under all circumstances. It is not right to be negligent towards life. Director General of Police R K Shukla, Bhopal Division Commissioner Kavindra Kiyawat, senior police officials besides NCC cadets and voluntary organisations were present during the programme.
