Building on the concept of enforcement day, some of us had described the concept to Mr Praveen Sood in this meeting. Subsequently, we have brought a sponsor on board, and we are set to try a DriveWell day in Bangalore on September 30th. The idea is to pick and force certain driver behavior messages on handpicked junctions with a lot of vigour and seriousness.

Join this project to help build the DriveWell day concept, and to try have more events to promote driver behavior in unique ways.

I reached venue 30 mins late, as I got confused between old Ashoknagar police station(where I saw board as traffic division). Thats fine. Actually its very near to Garuda Mall.

Session was so nice. The following points were shown, of course lots of Q&As.

Drive Less Save Your Health :)

Traffic on Bangalore is so bad, it is highly tiring to drive even 20 odd kilometeres within Bangalore. So much vehicles so close to you, you have to concentrate too much while driving, on top of this, people will be giving 'Gaalis' (shouting) to each other. A recent study by Bangalore Mirror reveals high BP to drivers immediately after driving. It is better to utilize the Public Transport and drive less whenever it is absolutely necessary.

So how do we proceed on this?

Is the roadmap for this project in place? Or still we are looking for a confirmed date?

 Nice to note there is a sponsorship, kudos in sponsor. There was  suggestion sometime back regarding a mass movement here. Lots of thought have gone in there. Though it was in relation with BMTC, now the time has come to extend. I will be FULL day volunteer for this event on Sept-30 if required. Booking my calendar right away.  I am joining this project immediately. 

P.S : On lighter note-> Happy to be first non-admin member :)
