Road Safety Manual – a guide to drive safe

ArriveSAFE has developed a comprehensive handbook on the rules of the road that address all classes of road users.

This Road Safety Manual explains rules of the road in an easy to understand manner. It is illustration intensive so even the poorly educated road users can also easily comprehend it. The manual would be available in Hindi and Punjabi shortly.

This handbook would work as a guide for:

  • Educating the road users about safe driving practices
  • guiding the new driving license seekers about the required procedures
  • developing a testing tool to check the knowledge level of the road users.

This 196 page manual contains Road Safety Code, a set of rules for guiding and regulating the conduct of different classes of road users (drivers of motor vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians) on roads and in road-related areas (footpaths and parking area) to ensure order and improve safety. The rules include the knowledge of road signs, markings and signals.

It explains common rules, etiquettes and safety practices that help the road users to understand and share the roads in a regulated and safe manner

The Road Safety Manual was released by Hon’ble Justice Mr. Rajan Gupta, Hon’ble Judge with the Punjab and Haryana High Court on 7th October 2015 at the UT Guest House, Chandigarh, India.

Your Child’s Road Safety Manual

We believe that by educating children on rules of the road inculcate discipline and also teach their parents through them. The “Your Child’s Road Safety Handbook” has been developed with an aim to instil road sense at an early stage.

The road safety tips explained in this book have been developed as a source of information for:

  • School children
  • Parents
  • School authorities
  • School bus drivers and assistants.

Even a twelve-year-old child can easily comprehend the book. We strongly recommend that children below the age of twelve be told just one lesson, “Stay away from the road as it is dangerous.”

  • The book was released by H.E., General S.F. Rodrigues, Governor Punjab & Administrator U.T. Chandigarh at Punjab Raj Bhawan, Chandigarh on 10th December 2007.
