President Zardari inaugurates first-ever Road Safety Institute of Pakistan

Maverick Report

ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari inaugurated the first-ever Road Safety Institute of Pakistan here on Tuesday.

Established by the National Highways & Motorway Police, the institute would impart traffic education and sensitise the drivers about the traffic laws, the driving hazards and the precautionary measures that need to be taken while driving.

ISLAMABAD: President Asif Ali Zardari inaugurating the first-ever Road Safety Institute of Pakistan on July 31, 2012.

Addressing the gathering after inaugurating the institute, President Zardari complimented the federal minister for communications over this singular achievement and also appreciated the efforts of officers of the National Highways & Motorway Police (NH&MP) for their commitment and dedication to build such an important national institution. He said it demonstrated their professionalism, commitment and dedication.

The president said the building of the first-ever Road Safety Institute in the country was a welcome initiative and it would help create awareness to make the roads safer and improve the travel and driving standards in the country. He said the NH&MP had won the confidence of the people for their professionalism, service and introducing a new culture in traffic policing.

President Zardari expressed the hope that they would keep up their professionalism and bring greater glory to themselves and the country, as the roads play a very important role in the socioeconomic development. At the same time, he said, the ever expanding road network and growing traffic also pose great challenges to the safety of travelling public. “It also poses great challenge to the environment,” he remarked.

The president said the challenge was greater in developing countries like Pakistan where traffic literacy is low and road safety education almost nonexistent. “There is an urgent need for educating and equipping the people with road safety measures,” he emphasised.

Expressing satisfaction over the establishment of similar institutes in other parts of the country, President Zardari expressed the hope that nationwide network of Road Safety Institutes would greatly benefit the society.

Federal Minister for Communications Dr Arbab Alamgir Khan and NH&MP Inspector General Zafar Abbas Lak also spoke on the occasion and highlighted the achievements of the NH&MP.

The president also distributed awards and certificates among NH&MP officers for the display of exemplary courage, commitment and devotion to their duty.
