Note that in many of these tasks, your burden will reduce if more people join a task! So please pick up a task yourself by writing to the contact person!
|Meet PMC Ward officer once a month||Discuss local issues like zebra stripes, P1-P2 signs and get them fixed.|
|SPTM Road Show||We are planning a road show, where you can go to any location (park/ college/ company/ society...), display banners and explain them to people.|
|Train PMPML drivers||We have a DVD for training. Show and explain it to PMPML drivers on one Sunday/ month.|
|Adopt 3-4 signals||Survey 3-4 signals in your neighbourhood once a month. Call traffic police control room to record your complaints. Inform the SPTM contact person so that he keeps track of it.|
|Measure traffic discipline||We are developing an index to numerically measure traffic discipline. You choose a place, take certain readings once a month and inform them to the coordinator.|
|Tune signal timings||(This needs to be done in a burst of 3-4 hrs in a week.) A group of SPTM members surveys a signal and suggests adjustments in its signal cycle timings.|
|School workshops||Go to a nearby school and explain traffic safety tips. We have some "standard" material that we go through, and you can contribute to it too.|
|Fund raising||Suggest prospective donors and put us in touch with them. Meet a prospective donor and explain SPTM's plans.|
|Action with traffic cops||This task is for all, not only for "Police Mitra"s. Choose a chowk and a time convenient to you. Accompany the traffic cops at the spot. But do understand some do-s and don't-s before you do this!|
