They got assurances from people that they will not violate traffic rules and will care for their safety. The Mahametro officials have been deployed especially to make people aware about the use of helmets for two-wheeler riders, use of seat-belts for four-wheeler drivers, safe distance between vehicles, use of indicators, not using mobile phone while driving or riding vehicles and maintaining slow speed at places where Metro work is going on. Mahametro officials said that the awareness will help bring down the number of accidents in the city. 

Earlier, Mahametro officials started a traffic awareness programme for school students. The officials are reaching out to various schools and to talk to students about traffic rules and regulations. The officials said that as the ongoing work of the metro on Vanaz-Ramwadi corridor and PCMC-Swargate corridor is in full swing, it is also causing traffic blockages. Therefore, it is necessary to make people aware about the ongoing work. The officials are making students aware about ensuring safety by walking through safe paths.
