“Our behaviour on road is a reflection of our character.” The behaviour of road users is influenced by the policies and how they are implemented, road environment and their knowledge. We work on improving these.
HOW WE STARTED
ArriveSAFE is a registered non-profit, non-governmental organization working on road safety and sustainable transportation.
ArriveSafe is a Registered Society under Act XXI of 1860.
WHO WE ARE
Harman Singh Sidhu
I see in ArriveSafe the seeds of a mass movement that will be not merely about traffic signs but about the importance of human life and how to preserve it. President of ArriveSafe and an IT entrepreneur, I want to make people realize the value of what I have lost.[More about me..]
In my career spanning more than three decades as Plastic Surgeon, I have operated thousands of cases who were leading normal life before a road accident changed their lives for ever. “Prevention is better than cure”, so lets not just sit and watch helplessly more die or get disabled but make an effort to make roads safer.[More about me..]
Dr. Himmat Mohan Singh Ghuman
Dr Ghuman did his MBBS and MS (General Surgery) from Govt Medical College Patiala. He worked as Senior Surgeon at Civil Hospital Mohali and GMSH, Sector 16, Chandigarh for more than two decades and now runs Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery clinic.
With a “Philosophy of giving” for every social cause, then being part of ArriveSAFE is the right choice. Life is all about matter of choices’, Right in choice, Right in direction, Right in action is what ArriveSAFE is aiming for. Let’s be the part of Campaign from RIGHT DOING to DOING RIGHT.
I have been a media person since the last 8 years and seeing all the reasons leading to death, I realized that road accidents are one of those factors which can be controlled. Saving life on road is possible only if one takes an initiative to educate the drivers and the pedestrians. A lot many lives can be saved if only proper education is imparted to people about road sense.Wars,disease,nature etc aren’t in my practical limits but yes roads are and I had promised myself to save atleast one life with my efforts and the greed for saving lives increased as I started this journey with the most responsible NGO I could have ever worked with – “ARRIVESAFE”.Being an active member for this NGO has also made me and my immediate family members very responsible on the roads which in itself is a big achievement
Badal Soni ( Manager-Communication)
I am a ISO 39001 certified Road Safety specialist, M.Tech from Kurukshetra University and B.E. from C.R.State College. Have worked as Project Manager (Environment & Road Safety) Punjab Roads & Bridges Development Board, Govt. of Punjab, PWD (B&R) Mohali from 2012 till 2015. I specialise in Development of Road Safety Strategy and Traffic Education and Black Spot identification by conduction Road Safety Audit with more than 10 years of experience of working in areas of Road Safety and Environment.
I am a Transport specialist working in a Regional NGO- Clean air Initiatives for Asian Cities. We strive for making the Asian Cities – Clean & Sustainable. My mission in life is to work for sustainable transport (affordable, accessible, safe and eco-friendly) for the people. In India nearly 260 people get killed on road on daily basis and still we think that accidents are unavoidable. If we can change the perception of people and government we can have better quality of life. :-)]
Road accidents are becoming a major cause of deaths these days. Usually there is lack of awareness amongst the people about the traffic rules and attitude of negligence on road which becomes a major cause of road accidents. I have done my Graduation in Psychology Honors and Masters in Human Rights and believe that Right to a safe life is of utmost importance. Working as a Coordinator, Awareness and Social Affairs with NGO Arrive Safe the main aim and target is to sensitize people and make them aware about road safety by organizing camps, holding exhibitions, workshops, seminars in urban and remote areas and also delivering the message through the digital platforms.
“A picture is worth a thousand words”, I am a pass-out of the Arts College and work towards developing educational content. The illustrations should be interesting but still give a clear message of what should be done. We have a wide range of road users so it is a challenge to design art work but I have accepted this challenge.
Most of the people who keep a gun at home for safety don’t wear a seat belt or headgear so they are their own enemies. I am B. Tech. and Software Engineer working with ArriveSafe to educate and promote road safety among people using Internet as medium. We do not require a mishappening to tell how important road safety is, it should be our nature to drive safely.
“I feel irritated, to say the least, at the scant regard shown by all of us motorists on the road. The liberty we take in jeopardizing others life while driving should be the biggest crime. Youngsters, especially school goers, should be made aware about the road safety rules compulsorily by schools all over. Our roads are fast tuning into death traps. Let us take a pledge that we will not lose a precious life just like that.”
