Pegasus Reef Beach Hotel organized a special workshop by joining hands with the Wattala Police Station to create awareness among schoolchildren on road accidents and the prevention of accidents. Being mindful of the increasing number of motor vehicle accidents, Pegasus Reef Beach Hotel commenced this initiative as a step to reduce the number of road accidents increasing day by day.
The police officers had the chance to speak to 1,000 schoolchildren in the Wattala area and emphasised the importance of being alert to prevent accidents. The police highlighted the role played by pedestrians in the prevention of accidents and the importance of them obeying road rules. Schoolchildren were then involved in practical demonstrations on how to safeguard themselves and be responsible on the road. The workshop was finally concluded by emphasizing how motorists and pedestrians should frequently update themselves on road traffic-safety rules.
