Educate drivers

The days when children could safely walk or cycle to school are gone.

The city's growth has forced people to change their lifestyle.

With education getting commercialised, arranging transportation has become one way of making profit for schools.

Limiting the number of children travelling in an autorickshaw is only one step towards ending this. The "Safer Road to School" programmed should be carried forward with the help of school managements and parents to see that every child learns the basics of road safety. Even autorickshaw drivers can be trained in this and should be made to realise the risk of taking too many small children on a single trip.
