Youngsters gain real education in Traffic Park from 1st April

NAGPUR: After a wait of three years, the purpose of starting the Children's Traffic Park at Dharampeth will be finally fulfilled. With accidents on the rise, and increasing cases of rash driving and violation of traffic rules by youngsters, the traffic park operator, traffic police and Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) have finally decided to act. They will educate schoolchildren and youngsters about traffic rules and regulations and principles of safe driving at the traffic park from April 1 between 5 and 9pm.

Entry fee to park hiked to Rs 5 from April 1

NMC has allowed the private contractor operating the traffic park to charge 5 as entry fee from April 1 from every person, instead of the present fee of 2. Parents will also be charged 3 each while accompanying children in the play zone. The park contractor said NMC has asked him to start paying the electricity and water bill and maintenance cost for the park. So, he has been allowed to increase the entrance fee to 5 and playing zone fee to 3 per person.
