In today's modern world every body is a road user in one shape or the other. The present transport system has minimized the distances but it has on the other hand increased the life risk. Every year road crashes result in loss of lakhs of lives and serious injuries to crores of people.

In India itself about eighty thousand people are killed in road crashes every year which is thirteen percent of the total fatality all over the world. Man behind the wheel plays an important role in most of the crashes. In most of the cases crashes occur either due to carelessness or due to lack of road safety awareness of the road user. Hence, road safety education plays an important role in shaping the attitudes and behaviours of children and young people - ensuring they become responsible drivers, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists.

With a view to actively engage schools and thereby inculcate the sense of road safety among students and to groom them up into responsible road using citizens a proposal for formation Road Safety Club in school§ wa formally launched in January 2010 and an activity charter is issued for the schools who got themselves enrolled as members of the Road Safety Club. As per the proposal, different training modules for all the categories of students—Primary, Middle and Secondary, were formulated. The main objective behind the road safety club is to join hands with other schools to spread road safety culture in the new tech-savvy generation and to create awareness amongst students who are future road users and inculcate correct attitude in them.
