Boko: Kamrup Police and Kamrup District Transport Department jointly organized a Road Safety Awareness meeting and a roadshow at Boko Gandhi Maidan on Tuesday. The meeting was attended by DSP Kamrup Rajib Kumar Saikia, DTO Kamrup Rupjyoti Kalita, Sumit Rabha, Executive Member of Rabha Hasong Autonomous Council, Dr. Tapan Dutta, Principal of Jawaharlal Nehru College Boko, Circle Officer Boko Dibash Bordoloi, Ganeswar Saharia, a renowned Resource Person, and many other dignitaries. In the program, many people from Rabha, Boro, Garo, Gurkha tribal communities, and NCC, Scouts, and Guides cadets also took part.
During the awareness meeting, Sumit Rabha, Executive Member of RHAC said in his speech, “State government departments have been urged not to drive while drinking alcohol and also fined to control road accidents.
DSP Rajib Kumar Saikia said, “We fined those who violate traffic rules for them only to decrease road accidents. Even after some people violate traffic rules, and as a result, that will be a cause of accidents.”
Kamrup DTO Rupjyoti Kalita said, “It is impossible to prevent accidents if you are not aware of yourself. If everyone obeys traffic rules and regulations while driving, then the accidents will decrease automatically.”
Dr. Tapan Dutta, Principal, JN College, said, “I have noticed that the state government has provided scooters to the girl students. But when they come to college, even boys students, they never use helmets. So we decided to put restrictions on entry to college without helmets.”
Principal Dutta also requested that they take necessary action on those public buses that run very rashly and use some high sound horns, which affect other commuters.
After the awareness meet, artists performed a street play on ‘drunk and drive’ on Boko Chamaria road in front of the Revenue circle office, Boko. After the street play, DTO Kamrup Rupjyoti Kalita flagged off a road safety awareness rally to Boko.
