New Delhi: Transport and Health Minister Satyendra Jain on Saturday exhorted people to respect road users and called for strong laws for road safety

He spoke of government’s initiative of awarding Rs 2,000 and public felicitation to people who help road victims

He said this at a function, ‘Child Safety and Safer Roads — Every Life Counts,’ organised by the Consumer Voice, a voluntary organisation to educate consumers about their rights, with the support of Cycling for Environment Club and Delhi Traffic Police

Paralympian cyclist Jagwinder Singh emphasised the need to have more of such events to promote road safety
