MESSAGE FROM VC’S DESK
More than 1,40,000 road accidents related deaths every year have made India the most dangerous country in the World. It is a man made tragedy that the right minded person with Government and People support can bring it down.
The centre for Road Safety of Sardar Patel University of Police, Security & Criminal Justice should aim to play a Catalytic role in this regard. Sh. M. L. Kumawat (VC SPUP)
The efforts for road safety in our country are in a nascent stage with extremely poor understanding about the road safety issue among stakeholders. Currently there are no academic courses in any university and colleges across country that creates professionals with knowledge and expertise in road safety. None of the social science colleges and university teaches road safety as subject in any ways. On the other hand road safety programming and its implementation would need huge number of professionals skilled in various aspects of safety issues resulted into huge dearth of people with right set of knowledge and skill in the area of road safety.
Given the size, context and complexities of the road safety program, there is need of such a centre which can cater to the need, demand and requirement of the road safety issue in the related to following areas:
- A cadre of skilled professional in the area of road safety and other areas related to trauma management.
- Institutionalized capacity building program for on job staffs on regular basis especially for teachers, police personals, transport officials, engineers, NGOs etc.
- Technical resource group and agencies that facilitate formulation and review Road Safety act, policy and program and strengthening implementation of the same.
- Demonstration of workable model under road safety.
- Centralized and high quality capacity building course, program and module.
