Traffic Training Institute insugurated at Jagtial

The Traffic Training Institute was formally inaugurated by Minister for Social Welfare Koppula Eshwar along with ZP Chairperson Dava Vasantha, MLA M. Sanjay Kumar, MLC P. Sudhakar Reddy and others in Jagtial town.

Established by the Jagtial district police under the supervision of Superintendent of Police Sindhu Sharma, the institute would inculcate traffic sense among vehicle-users as well as children and students. Besides taking up counselling of traffic violators, the institute would conduct training sessions for them to avoid such violations being repeated.

The Jagtial police have set up a Road Safety Education Centre with a seating capacity of 100 to screen two-hour films on accidents and how to prevent them. There would be a quiz on road safety. The institute would also have miniature tracks, and 50 sign boards on traffic rules and regulations. The special attraction would be the two-wheeler driving simulator secured from New Delhi to educate youth on the speed of the vehicle they drive and how to control it to prevent accidents. The Minister appreciated the district police for setting up the first-of-its-kind traffic training institute in the State to create awareness among people. The Minister and Jagtial legislator Sanjay Kumar rode a two-wheeler on the simulator. Collector A. Sharath, DSP Malla Reddy and others were also present.
