The Chief Minister of Punjab, Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday, announced the recruitment of 1300 police for Road Safety Force in the state.

The Chief Minister of Punjab, Bhagwant Mann on Tuesday, announced the recruitment of 1300 police for Road Safety Force in the state. The purpose of this force will be to address the high fatality rate caused by road accidents.

During the launch of the Road Safety Force (also known as Sadak Suraksha Force), the Chief Minister emphasized that this specialised force will not only help to reduce the number of fatalities resulting from road accidents but also ensure efficient traffic flow across the state’s roads.

The Chief Minister highlighted the alarming rate at which precious lives are lost due to road accidents in Punjab and emphasized that this trend could be reversed by implementing effective traffic regulations. To end this, the Road Safety Force is being established as part of the Punjab Police.

The Chief Minister announced the creation of a new force to combat reckless driving and improve traffic flow, ultimately reducing the number of road accidents. This force will alleviate the workload of police officers stationed at police stations.

Initially, 144 vehicles will be launched with 116 vehicles deployed every 30 kilometres and 28 equipped with speed radars. Additionally, each vehicle will contain a medical kit for emergency situations.

Various uniform designs were considered for this modern force, ultimately deciding that the uniforms should have reflectors for easy identification from a distance by those in need.

The Chief Minister stressed the importance of adding reflectors to the uniforms of the force in order to increase visibility and make it easier for individuals who need to identify their vehicles from a distance.

Mann was confident that this advanced force will be instrumental in improving traffic flow throughout the state and hopes that other states will follow suit in the future. He expressed optimism that other states in the country would adopt similar initiatives in the future.
