Fortis Hospital Anandapur and Kolkata Police Joins Hand on Road Safety Week
News Desk, News Nation 360 : Kolkata Police and Fortis Hospital, Anandapur collaborated on Road Safety week. The objective of the program was to raise awareness about the ill effect of unnecessary honking, specifically infront of hospitals and schools and similar places as such where both and children and adult can suffer from serious illness because of the noise pollution being created through honking. This initiative is an unique campaign done by Fortis hospital in association with Kolkata Police Traffic Guard - awareness about no honking especially in front of the hospital. This whole initiative can be raised in two ways, one being creating social awareness
and second by giving penalties. They are not giving any penalties but they are creating awareness by getting hold of the car drivers who are honking in front of the hospital to create a sense of understanding among them about the ill effects of honking followed by distributing roses and chocolates to them. It is either by creating awareness or by giving penalties they want to create this awareness among people that honking unnecessarily is not a good habit and that one should avoid it as much as one can. Since 31st they are celebrating road safety week, we have initiated different activities during the road safety week, among them they have collaborated with Fortis hospital. They are trying to create and spread an awareness about no honking, especially in front of hospitals and schools. They had a covid survivor who shared her experience about her stay in hospital during covid days, and how she along with her children suffered due to unnecessary honking in front of hospitals. They know it by fact that people honk unnecessarily creating a feeling of irritation for others. This campaign is totally focused on creating awareness among people that unnecessary honking is wrong. In this program, they stopped the honkers, requested them not to honk and distributed roses along with chocolates. Henceforth, they will take a step and might prosecute people for such acts.
