Sarangi said, “We used to observe Road Safety Week every year. However, the central government and all the state governments re-alised that despite stringent trait fic and hefty fine amounts, peo-ple are not willingly obeying the rules. So, efforts will be made to reach the maximum number of people to bring awareness in the month-long drive.

” Sarangi also stated that it is im-possible to implement any law strictly to secure the safety of peo-ple without adequate public aware-ness in a democratic country. The police will focus on bike riders who outnumber others in the number of road fatalities in the country
