Vizianagaram Superintendent of Police M. Deepika Patil on Sunday urged people to come to the rescue of victims of road accidents since timely help would help save precious lives.

She was the chief guest at a programme organised in connection with World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims on Sunday. “Overspeeding is a major reason for road accidents. The number of accidents would decline sharply if people followed all traffic rules,” Ms. Patil said. “We are trying to make Vizianagaram an accident-free district. It is only possible if people vow to follow traffic rules in letter and spirit,” she said.

Stating that people need not hesitate to extend a helping hand to accident victims fearing trouble with the police, Ms. Patil said that the police department would treat them utmost respect. Earlier, she felicitated several people for coming to the aid of accident victims. Traffic DSP L. Mohana Rao and Vizianagaram DSP P. Anil Kumar were present.
