Workshop on Road Safety by Uber & IRSC
Our school organised a workshop with the purpose of making teenaged students aware of traffic rules and regulations. The workshop was held in collaboration with Uber and the team of Indian Road Safety Campaign(IRSC). Professionals from Uber conducted this session and interacted with the students to teach them basic traffic rules and the do’s and don’ts while driving a vehicle.
Through a presentation, students were apprised that gave the lesson that accidents can happen any time and it highlighted the need for cautious driving. They were taught about the significance of certain important traffic signals. They learned that it is harmful to drive fast and how necessary it is for people to follow rules. The students also came to know about the Good Samaritan Act in which people who provide assistance to injured people on the road are given legal protection. This went a long way in instilling the virtue of being helpful to accident victims.
The workshop concluded with an interactive quiz on traffic rules. Students were given prizes for every correct answer. It was truly an informative session with a strong message to be safe and responsible citizens on the roads.
