Mohanlal campaigns for road safety


Actor Mohanlal on Sunday threw his weight behind the road safety awareness campaign launched by the State Police and executed through Student Police Cadets.


On the fifth day of the State-wide campaign ending April 26, the actor arrived at a gathering of the SPCs at the BTH junction to distribute three types of road safety pledge cards — each meant for motor vehicle drivers, pedestrians and two-wheeler riders.


Speaking on the occasion, the actor said that during his several journeys, he had the occasion to witness some rash and negligent driving on the roads. “Driving around used to be fun in the olden times. With the volume of vehicles on our roads going up manifold, now there needs to be a change in attitude. Our negligence could endanger someone else's life,” he said, asking the recipients of the card to imbibe the spirit of the pledge.


The actor also handed over a card to a lady who was passing by in her car as the function was under way.


Under the road safety campaign, the SPCs stationed at traffic points along the State's highways ask offenders to take a pledge not to violate the traffic laws. Their task is to sensitise jaywalkers, two-wheeler riders driving about without helmets and motorists not wearing seatbelt. The campaign is called ‘Shubha Yatra', aimed at curbing mishaps on the State's roads.
