Traffic jams are a common sight on Indian city roads,and road safety is a matter of great concern for all,particularly school and college students.Whatever mode of transport is adopted to get to their institution and back home,parents wait for the safe return of their wards every day.Depending on the proximity of school or college and the route involved,the approximate time taken can never be totally adhered to,most of the time.Often, parents have to call up on the child's cell phone to find out if he reached safely and on time,be it tuitions,coaching classes, friend's party,or the school.
Anxious parents and teachers at school would do well to educate their students about the do's and don'ts on Indian roads.Some schools encourage their children to take active part in helping to regulate traffic within the campus,on a rotation basis.
