Hyderabad, 4th Aug 2018: Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS) Secunderabad in association with TCOS (Twin-cities Orthopedics society) and Indian Orthopedic Association today organized a Road Safety Awareness Walk. Every year, August 4th is National Bone and Joint Day. In 2012, Government of India declared August 4th as National Bone and Joint Day. The theme of this year is Road Safety.

 

The walk was flagged off from Jalvihar water park at 6 AM. This walk was organized with the aim to increase the Road Safety Awareness by emphasizing the importance of traffic rules and alert public about the after-effects of accidents which are extremely disturbing. The walkers covered a distance of 2 Kms starting from Jalvihar Water Park to KIMS hospital Secunderabad. The rally saw participants turning up in big numbers to discuss and raise awareness about the need for road safety.

 

Every year, India has more than 75 lakh accident victims and among them, almost 1.8 lakh die.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr.Bhaskar Rao, MD & CEO KIMS Hospitals, said, "Walk was initiated to support the idea of following road safety measures on the occasion of Nation Bone and Joint Day. Our intention is to gather public and spread the message of road safety and also, this an attempt to bring a positive change in the mindset of people and thereby hopefully reduce instances of reckless driving. Everyone must play their part by following traffic rules to avoid accidents.”

This program will not only to create awareness about traffic rules, but also focus on the problems and after effects of the accidents,” said Dr.Srinivas Kasha, Secretary, Twin-cities Orthopedics society (TCOS)
