The national service scheme (NSS) and national cadet corps (NCC) units of MCM DAV College for Women in collaboration with Chandigarh traffic police organised a traffic awareness programme for students on Thursday.
On the occasion, a movie featuring scenes of real accidents in and around Chandigarh was screened, followed by a lecture on traffic rules and road safety by traffic police personnel.
The Chandigarh police also demonstrated a mobile app for women's safety called '24X7' that allows women to instantly alert the police control room when in trouble. The PCR system will automatically trace the woman's location and simultaneously send an alert to the nearest PCR vehicle.
The NSS and NCC volunteers, besides the other guests, were all praise for the efforts of the police.
Dr Puneet Bedi, principal of the college, said, "Road safety and women's safety are the need of the hour. Awareness and knowledge coupled with action can combat both."
