To promote ‘Correct Road Traffic Behaviour’ on roads it is mandatory that TV Commercials from all Industries including automobile industry should be made responsible in promoting ‘Safety Aspect’ amongst road users. Advertisements must showcase ‘Safe Driving Behaviour’ rather than depicting Negligent/Dangerous Driving and over speeding with a ‘FUN’ element. TRAX have been working on the issue since 2015 and the fight still continues.
