If you want to win some words of praise by none other than Bollywood star Saif Ali Khan, this is just the right time. All that you need to do is follow traffic rules while driving on city roads.
On Monday, Saif will educate people about dos and don’ts on the road at Central Delhi. All those who follow traffic norms will receive a card of appreciation from the star himself and may also get a chance to get his/her photograph clicked with the star. The violators, however, would get a lesson from him on importance of following road rules. Saif will be accompanied by a group of traffic police officials on Monday.
“The card will be autographed by Saif Ali Khan himself,” said Satyendra Garg, joint commissioner of police (traffic).
According to officials, the star, who has been shooting in Delhi for his forthcoming film Agent Vinod, appreciated the efforts of Delhi Traffic Police to improve traffic management. “He has accepted our proposal to educate motorists,” said a senior officer of the traffic department.
Involvement of celebrities in the mission helps a lot. “People, especially the youngsters, tend to make celebrities their role models. It has a huge impact on the youngsters who often violate traffic norms,” said Garg.
Recently, when the cricket World Cup fever had gripped the city, traffic department brought legendary players of yesteryears like Kapil Dev, Bishen Singh Bedi, Kirti Azad to educate the people.
However, Saif will be there in Central Delhi on Monday sometime during noon. Traffic police, however, would decide the locations on Monday itself after observing traffic situation.
