A workshop can, help save lives, create a responsible community and help to look at the problem from civic angle.
For Schools: Not lack of skills, but it’s the wrong behaviors & attitudes that cause most accidents. What we practice as adolescents (15-25) is what we become as adults. Prevention is better than cure and habits form young. Shaping safe behaviors is easier than trying to change them later.
For Employers: With highest fatality, and crippling injury rates in most productive age group 15-45, and no two wheeler driver education, a few hours spent on the workshop could help prevent crashes , injuries & save families, create a responsible community & help environment in co-existence.
Drivers and Staff of Public Transport: Large number of Indian Population travels/commutes through public transport for several hours a day. Their expeience in travel affects productivity and morale. There are expectations from Society and responsibility towards it. Done properly with Vision and Policy, Drivers and Staff can make life in a city a joy.
