Car Rally for creating Awareness on Road Safety: Young Indians (Yi)

Young Indian (Yi) Dehradun Chapter is organizing an awareness Car Rally on Road Safety to sensitize people on importance of Road Safety on Sunday, 3rd Oct 2021. The activity will start from The Solitaire Farms, Malsi, Dehradun and will go through various places in town and will end at Hotel LP Vilas, Prem Nagar, Dehradun.


The objective of the activity is to spread awareness of safe driving habits by the users while they drive their vehicles. As per Ministry of Road Transport and Highways every year road crashes result in loss of lakhs of lives and serious injuries to crores of people. The major cause of these road accidents is carelessness of the driver for various reasons like Over Speeding, Drink and Drive, Lane Switching, Intoxicated driving under impression of any Drugs, Not Wearing the Seat Belt or all above conditions. Young Indians (Yi) as a youth oriented social organizing is actively operating in Dehradun since Aug 2020 with more than 107+ active members. It is an integral part of the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), a non-government, not-for-profit, industry led and industry managed organization playing a proactive role in India's development process.


Yi has done various members engagement activities and social cause projects since the launch of chapter and have been able to connect with society and youth with their initiatives. The Chapter under the leadership of Mr Rahul Singhal, Chair, Young Indians has conceived the idea of organizing a Road Safety Awareness Rally linked with a fun activity so that the message is well connected and communicated to youth and citizens at large to obey and adhere to the road safety norms. Mr Janmaijai Khanduri, SSP, Dehradun will be the Chief Guest.


To ensure the safe driving conditions on roads Young Indians feels that it’s a collective effort of users and authority. The traffic department, and authorities on time to time basis organize awareness drive and initiatives for ensuring safe driving conditions. We hope this activity will help in reducing RTA and Causalities/ Fatalities on roads in Uttarakhand.
