Effort to improve Pune Traffic

  1. 1. “Mission 10vi Pass” On Road Activity 2-4 Mar 2010 Ninad Patil 4th March 2010
  2. 2. Mission 10Vi Pass • “Mission 10vi Pass” (MDP) is a Pune City wide campaign to significantly improve traffic discipline & is a brain-child of SPTM. (Save Pune Traffic Movement) • As the traffic discipline in Pune city is deteriorated to it’s highest low, time has come for “back-to-school”. • The campaign is a citizen’s campaign with a step- by-step reinforcement of traffic rules, starting from the simple to more difficult rules to implement. (10 steps/ standards) • The campaign is supported by Govt. authorities like PMC, Police & RTO along with Corporates, educational institutes and other citizen’s bodies.
  3. 3. Mission 10Vi Pass • As a part of on-road awareness and “Visibility” of the campaign, it was decided along with Police (DCP Traffic Mr. Manoj Patil) that Cummins & SPTM volunteers would create awareness on select crossings in Pune, where traffic infrastructure is in place (Signals & Zebras in working condition). • This part was named as “Opration Ishara (alarm)”, which will be then followed by “Operation Achanak (Sudden action on violators)” carried out by Police. • Sections of busy Karve Road were selected (Nal Stop & Khandujibaba Chowk at Deccan Gymkhana)
  4. 4. Mission 10Vi Pass • This on-road activity was very well led by Cummins India Limited (Kothrud Plant) . Besides sponsoring awareness placards, over 120 volunteers from Cummins also participated in the activity. • The activity was also supported by 30 MBA students of RIHMS( Research Institute of Health, Science & Management, Pune) • Similar activity was carried out in Dec-09 as well. At that time about 100 volunteers from Cummins, participated in the activity. • These volunteers worked closely along with Police and wardens in the busy time slots of 9.00am- 11.00am on 2-3-4 March 2010.
  5. 5. Mission 10Vi Pass • While Cummins volunteers took the morning slots, the evening slots were covered by RIHMS & SPTM volunteers. • The entire activity was pre-decided and supported by Police under the guidance of API Mr. Sureshkumar Raut of Kothrud Police station & PI Kutwal of Deccan Police station. • Deputy Commissioner of Police (Traffic Division) Mr. Manoj Patil visited us on 3rd March’10 and appreciated our campaign in support of improving traffic discipline. • The activity coincided with the start of National Safety Week.
