Society for Automotive Fitness & Environment (SAFE), a SIAM initiative, in association with Ministry of Road Transport & Highways and Transport Department, Government of Jharkhand, organised the 20th edition of SAFE Annual Convention in Ranchi, Jharkhand last week.
On the occasion, SIAM and the Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC) launched “Driver Safe App” which is a platform to recognize, reward and incentivize people with good driving behaviour. This app is designed to provide better knowledge to the drivers to prevent road accidents and can detect a driver’s way of driving, the driving pattern and the level of proficiency in driving. Based on this, skill based training can be provided to drivers which will eventually help in reducing accidents and thus lead to safer roads.
Meanwhile, the convention this year was themed around “Make Roads Safer: 50 by 2030”, which implies reducing 50 percent fatality rate by 2030, with a fitting tag line – “Safe Jharkhand. Sure Jharkhand”. The Convention was attended by prominent guests from the ministry and delegates from different backgrounds.
