Bengaluru: Animation films to raise road safety awareness

Sixty-six animated films were launched on the importance of road safety

BENGALURU: Traffic Management Centre in association with Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics (MAAC) launched 66 animated films on the importance of road safety. The films were produced by MAAC students in just 100 hours.

Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) M.A. Saleem inaugurated the event and said that MAAC was supporting the traffic policemen in Bengaluru and Mysuru on stress management. “Road safety should be given more importance as around 10,000 fatal accidents take place in the state every year, which on an average makes 30-35 accidents a day.

Sometimes these accidents are not because of faulty driving, but because of environmental and road conditions. The death toll has increased manifold as a result of which India ranks poorly in global road safety scale,” he said.

These animated films will be shown in cinema halls and televisions and later at bus stands and railway stations, he said. Movies focusing on issues such as ‘Always make way for Emergency Vehicles’, ‘Drive with care’, ‘Wear a helmet, seatbelt’, ‘Negative outcomes of speeding and drunk driving’ were exhibited.
