30th Road Safety Week 2019 is celebrated in India from 04th February (Monday) to the 10th February (Sunday). Road safety week is celebrated with the great joy and enthusiasm at our Detroit Engineered Products office, Chennai. It is heartening that many of our employees came forward to project the importance of following road rules, commuting safely in road and depicted the organized way of doing travel in road.
We pledged ourselves on the below safety norms:
Staying under limits, and slow down to 20mph around schools, homes and shops to protect others. Slowing right down for bends, brows and bad weather, and avoid overtaking.
Never drive after drinking any alcohol or drugs – not a drop, not a drag.
Making sure everyone in the vehicle is belted up on every journey, and kids smaller than 150cm are in a proper child restraint.
Never take or make calls, read or type when driving. Putting communication devices out of reach, and stay focused on the road.
Stay focused on safe driving. Taking regular breaks and never drive if tired, stressed or on medication that affects driving.
Minimalize the amount of driving, or not drive at all. Getting about by walking, cycling or public transport as much as one can, for road safety, the environment and my health.
About Road Safety Week
Road safety week is a national event aimed at raising public awareness about traffic rules and ultimately to reduce casualties due to road accidents. Millions lose their life and millions get injured in road accidents globally; mainly, due to lack of awareness about traffic rules or a behavior of flouting them. Therefore, to make people more aware of the traffic rules and to persuade them to follow rules while on road; the Road Safety Week is observed annually.
