Road Safety and Traffic Education – Part II
This place gives a hope that at least the next generation would make our roads safer. These are pictures from the Traffic Park in the Tamilnadu Science & Technology Center, Chennai.
|<< Neatly laid roads and the clear pedestrian crossing with the correct signals are a must for any good traffic system.|
|<< The sign boards provides details on the various traffic signs. The petrol bunk gives the park a real life look.|
Areas of improvement:
- The park lacks real vehicles. Some traffic parks provide toy vehicles for kids. Real traffic situation is created and kids are taught on how to handle those situations. Not sure whether this facility is temporarily unavailable or they have decided to close this facility altogether.
- More involvement from the public (students and parents). Even though it was a Sunday, there were only very few parents in this area of the park.
- Support from the NGOs to maintain and promote this initiative.
- Entrance fee to the entire park area is Rs. 2, making it affordable to the common man.
