The city traffic police on Sunday gave tips to about 350 school bus drivers on driving in low visibility conditions.
Many private schools participated in the one-day programme aimed at sensitising the drivers and instilling a sense of responsibility in them.
"We have started the drive to make school bus drivers more alert while driving in foggy weather conditions," said DCP (east) Maheshwar Dayal.
The traffic police officers also showed the drivers an emergency response vehicle that is used in road accidents.
The programme was organised in collaboration with the Aravali Institute of Safe Driving at the traffic police office in Sector 51.
Some of the schools that participated in the drive were The Shri Ram School, DAV Public School, Scottish High International School, Blue Bells Public School and Amity International School.
"It was a useful session for the drivers as it upgraded their knowledge on driving in adverse weather conditions," said Savita Mehta, vice-president (media) of Amity International School.
Nine drivers and one supervisor had attended the training session from the school.
"The drivers got useful tips which would help them while carrying school children in a bus. Nearly 25 drivers and contractors participated in the activity," said Anita Makkar, principal of DAV Public School.
