Tata Motors organized a ‘Road Safety Awareness’ cycle rally to educate Punekars about the importance of road discipline and following traffic rules. The cycle rally was organized on 9th September 2018 in Pune to emphasize on the fundamental traffic rules and highlight the basic precautions a commuter must take while on the move. The event saw an overwhelming participation of nearly 1200 Tata Motors employees and their family members.
The ‘Road Safety Awareness’ cycle rally was flagged off from Tata Motors CVBU Main Gate by Mr. Jyotindran Sastabhavan and Mr. Pratyush Khare of VATS, ERC and Mr. Sarfaraj Maner – Head HR, CVBU. The route for this rally cycle was 15 kilometers long and wound its way in and around the industrial twin cities of Pimpri and Chinchwad.
During the rally, employees and their family members were provided with Road Safety slogans such as – Wear helmet while driving, Do not Use mobile phones while driving, Don’t Drink & Drive, Never exceed speed limits, Wear seat belts while driving, etc.
Speaking about the initiative, Mr. Alok Singh, Plant Head – CVBU Pune, Tata Motors said “Tata Motors, as a value-based organisation, is passionate about people and is committed to achieving the highest standards in Safety, health and Environment (SHE) for all our stakeholders and the environment that we operate in. We have always believed in reaching out to people and creating awareness on crucial social issues. Our endeavour has been to promote these virtues within communities, for ensuring a safe working environment. An alarming rise in deaths due to road accidents has highlighted the need for disciplined driving and stringent adherence to traffic rules. Tata Motors takes this opportunity to urge the residents of Pune and those travelling to the city, to follow traffic rules and remain safe with your loved ones. We want to thank PCMC Police for their support and corporation in seamless completion of this huge event.”
