Hon'ble C.M Narendra Modi launched a comic style traffic safety book, in Sayaji Rao auditorium, Vadodara. The comic book, printed by city police in public-private partnership was launched in presence of the audience, comprising of Satish Sharma, Police commissioner of Vadodra and TAC (Traffic Advisory Committee) chairperson, BJP party leaders, workers and schoolteachers. Narendra Modi addressed the audience and said, “Public-private partnership has been a tradition in this city and efforts made by people involved in this project deserve appreciation. It takes lot of efforts and cost to produce a doctor who saves lives of accident victims. But by following traffic rules, you can save many more lives at a much lesser cost”

The animated book launched will be taught to children, serving as a teaching aid for traffic rules. Nearly 247 schools in Vadodra are going to have a traffic period once a week. School children will be taught traffic rules in an enjoyable way. TAC will prep one teacher from each school. After that on any day of the week the students can be taught about traffic rules by the teacher. Nilesh Shukla, an officer with TAC said that the syllabus for the traffic book for children from 1 to 6 standards was done in the Adult Education Department of the MS University. The syllabus is of 20 hours. 247 teachers in charge of 1 standard in different schools will be taught. The students from 1 to 6 standards will be taught in an enjoyable way. It is believed that the students of 8 to 11 will be taught in the second phase.

Mr. Modi also narrated one of his personal experiences on this occasion too. He recalls, he was on his morning walk with his friends in Germany and said, "There was no traffic on the road so we thought of crossing it despite red signal for pedestrians. A gentleman came running towards us angrily and asked us to stop. He said kids staying in adjacent apartments are watching us and if we break rules they would be tempted to do the same. I was really impressed with his concern,"

He also advised that parents should educate their kids about traffic safety and lead by setting an example.

Satish Sharma, Police commissioner of Vadodra and TAC chairperson, said that India tops in the number of deaths by road accident. Nearly 1, 30, 000 people die every year in road mishaps in India.

The traffic book project is being handled byTraffic Advisory Committee (TAC) that is working with the city police. "Managing traffic has become a big priority for all the cities and our aim is to educate kids who will drive on city roads in future," said city police commissioner Satish Sharma
