The student police cadets will undertake a traffic awareness campaign in the city from Tuesday as part of a State-wide programme to be launched by Chief Minister Oommen Chandy in Alappuzha.
The campaign has been integrated with the annual summer camp of the cadets.
A five-member team each will be stationed at major junctions from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on these days. These groups will give traffic tips to motorists, especially drivers of buses and tipper lorries and two-wheeler riders. Each team will be assisted by a police team, led by a sub-inspector, G. Sparjankumar, Commissioner of Police, Kozhikode city, said.
The campaigners will give cards to the motorists at these junctions. The drivers will have to fill the details and return the cards, he said.
Traffic offenders will have to give a signed pledge that they will not violate any traffic rules in future. No punitive action will be taken against them. The police want to get the message across not only to the motorists but also to jaywalking pedestrians, K. Radhakrishnan, Assistant Commissioner of Police, said.
