In a bid to make people aware on road safety rules, the Gajapati police conducted a campaign by distributing chocolates to the motorists who wore helmets and put on seatbelts at Station Square here on Friday.
Gajapati SP Sarah Sharma, motivating people to follow traffic rules, offered chocolates among those who abided by the norms but distributed bitter gourds and alma to helmetless riders and motorists who had not put on their seatbelts.
On the occasion, helmets were also provided at affordable prices.
Sharma said the awareness campaign has been undertaken to observe the 31st Road Safety Week. Among others, RTO-cum-Sub-Collector Rajnikant Swain, SDPO PK Jena, MVI Basant Kumar Mahapatra and Paralakhemundi PS IIC Vivekananda Swain were present.
