“Let’s put safety over hasty”
A session on road safety was organized by the Traffic Police of Delhi for the students of GD Goenka Public School, Sector-9, where they were taught how it is paramount for us to practice road safety measures and keep ourselves as well as others safe on the road, just being aware of them alone will not help much.

A conscious understanding and following of these signs will definitely help in making roads a much safer place to walk or drive on. The principal of the school, who is an ardent follower of discipline….be it anywhere worded her thoughts, “Slow and steady wins the race. Let’s be slow on speed and win the race of our lives by not just knowing…but following.”
