RTO to train school bus drivers on road safety

Mumbai: The Western India Automobile Association (WIAA), along with the RTO, will conduct a two-day camp in Mumbai to train 5,000 school bus and other heavy transport vehicle drivers on "safe driving". 

    Said Tardeo regional transport officer K T Golani, "It's a government of Indiafunded project. It is being organized by WIAA, which will provide simulator-based training. The RTO is also part of this programme wherein we will send the bus drivers, truckers for the training programme. We are also asking the motor-driving schools to send freshly trained drivers so that they can participate in the camp and get sensitized on all aspects of road safety." 
    Golani stated that the primary objective was to educate all the drivers so that they ensure safety of every school student they ferry and also of tourists/commuters (in tourist buses). 
    The organizers of the camp, which will kickstart from next week, will pay Rs 250 to each participant besides awarding a certificate and a Rs 1-lakh accidentinsur
ance scheme. "It is a comprehensive camp, which comprises both theory and practicals. We want every participant to benefit from this training. It should be put to practical use," he said. 
    Nitin Dossa of WIAA said that such camps will be an ongoing process to train drivers of heavy vehicles on road safety. "We have one of the best simulators in the country for 
heavy vehicles. It was inaugurated recently by the chief minister and it will be used to enhance the driving skills of every participant," he stated. 
    The WIAA has a good infrastructure on its premises near Churchgate station to conduct the camps. Sources said that the camps will be monitored by the road safety cell of the Union ministry of road transport.
