Trivandrum: The government launched a unique and much needed initiative the ‘Save Our Fellow Traveller,’ (SOFT) at Tagore Theatre here on Monday. Kerala Police’s trained volunteer force will render immediate medical assistance to victims of road accidents.

Announcing this Minister for Transport A K Saseendran said schemes would be worked out other districts within a year. The government will honour the police officers and volunteers associated with SOFT who help bring down road accidents.

Earlier in the day, a Smart Traffic Classroom was launched at the Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Pattom, by actor and goodwill ambassador of Subhayatra Mohanlal. The programme, meant for road safety awareness, will be introduced in one school in all the 140 Assembly constituencies, the Minister said.

Presenting badges to 1,200 volunteers of SOFT selected from 26 circles, Mohanlal said the responsibility to create road safety awareness should not be confined to the police.
