Ever since Unlock guidelines have come to place and normal lives are beginning to shape up, city-traffic volume, too, is gradually reaching pre-lockdown levels. The result – huge traffic snarls and multiple law-violations. One such city which has been facing serious traffic issues and still going unnoticed is Mohali.
To counter this menace, MY FM and Punjab Traffic Police joined hands to spread awareness about the significance of following traffic rules and safety protocols in a week-long activity “Control Mohali Control”.
MY FM RJs Gagan & Jassi, with the support of city-traffic police, covered major bottleneck areas of Mohali as a part of this initiative. Sap Nagar Traffic SP, Mr. Kesar Singh Dhaliwal added “My FM RJs Gagan and Jassi did a tremendous job. Initiatives like these are very crucial. I believe that to make citizens, especially the youth, to understand the importance of traffic rules and respect them, a dedicated subject should be included in the school curriculum”.
‘Control Mohali Control’ culminated with both the RJs gifting safety hampers to all the traffic police officers who helped in the successful execution of the activity.
Commenting on the initiative, Mr. Rahul Namjoshi, COO, MY FM, says” ‘Control Mohali Control’ is yet another initiative to sensitize the people of Mohali; our RJs are followed by lakhs of people in the city, and with them taking up this issue, it immensely helps the local authorities. Activities like these and some of those executed in the recent past, like ‘Cyclegiri’ in Chandigarh, are done to bring attention to these local issues. As a pioneer radio network, it is our duty to give prime focus to the issues of the cities we represent”.
