Srinagar, Jun 26 (GNS): In response to rising concerns over reckless driving and stunt biking by underage students, the Education department has taken decisive action by issuing a ban on the use of motorbikes and scooties by students below the age of 18. The move comes after several reports of injuries, minor accidents and even loss of lives caused over the period of time.

The Office of the Joint Director (Central & North) School Education, according to GNS, has instructed all Chief Education Officers in Srinagar, Budgam, Ganderbal (Central), Baramulla, Kupwara, and Bandipora (North) to sensitize school administrators, both in government and private schools, about the ban.

The Head of Institutions has been directed not to allow any student below the age of 18 to use motorbikes or scooties during school hours.

Furthermore, the students who do use these vehicles must wear helmets and possess valid driving licenses issued by the competent authority.

 To ensure compliance, Zonal Education Officers have been directed to conduct surprise checks within and around educational institutions to discourage the continuation of this dangerous trend.

Moreover, the Regional Transport Officer, Kashmir, along with SSP Traffic City and SSP Traffic Rural, has also been urged to intensify surprise checks on bike and scooty riders. 

They have been urged to intercept any underage students found without helmets or lacking valid driving licenses, in an effort to curb this growing menace and enforce the rule of law.

These measures have been put in place to prioritize the safety and security of all students, promoting discipline, morality, and decency within and around schools. (GNS)
