Chief Secretary urges to make law an integral part of personality

One-day workshop was organized by the Transport Department, Himachal Pradesh under the National Road Safety Month today in HIPA to spread awareness amongst the people regarding road safety through District Youth Officers of Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan, national volunteers and youth to spread awareness about road safety. Chief Secretary Anil Khachi presided over the workshop.

On this occasion, Anil Khachi said that compliance of law should be an integral part of our personality. It was responsibility of everyone to properly follow the rules to protect one’s own and others life. Laws have been made for benefit of the people, and disobeying the laws leads to ill effects.

Chief Secretary said that many road accidents take place due to human error. Improvement in the construction of roads could prevent road accidents. He said that road safety is not just a month-long programme, but is an awareness campaign that continues throughout the life. He said that awareness should be spread amongst people for obeying of traffic rules and ill effects of over speeding, drunk driving, overloading, etc.
