"Cycling is ideal in small towns with narrow roads. It is also a healthy exercise. I urge more number of people to take up cycling," Mr. Ravirkrishna said. The SP is also planning to use bicycle to commute to work on at least one day in a week.

Urban Superintendent of Police A. Ravikrishna on Sunday led by example, cycling his way to participate in a few engagements as he began addressing some of the crucial issues relating to road safety.

Mr. Ravikrishna, who recently launched ‘Vision Zero’, a programme to curb the growing number of road accidents by initiating a drive against drunken driving and plying of unauthorised vehicles during peak hours, took to the bicycle to spread the message of road safety.

He started from his camp office, pedalled his way up the RoB at Kankaragunta, and attended the World Photography Day celebrations organised at Majeti Kalyana Mandapam in Chandramouli Nagar. The SP was accompanied by a lone security personnel. Mediapersons and other police personnel followed him.

Mr. Ravikrishna, in the company of Station House Inspector of Pattabhipuram Durga Prasad, was at ease pedalling his way and did not appear tired at the end of the trip.

The SP then cycled to the Pattabhipuram police station, where he launched a women protection beat system to address the problems relating to chain snatching.

“Cycling is ideal in small towns with narrow roads. It is also a healthy exercise. I urge more number of people to take up cycling,” Mr. Ravirkrishna said. The SP is also planning to use bicycle to commute to work on at least one day in a week.
