The officials along with SBI Life’s team also distributed free helmets to motorist and pillion riders, impressing upon ‘protection as an enabler’ for individuals to pursue their dreams fearlessly, thus encouraging a behavioural change to make ‘protection’ a priority.

Kamlesh Dixit, DCP, Mahila Apraadh & Suraksha, Lucknow, said, “Lucknow Traffic Police and SBI Life have come together to host this public awareness drive to educate & encourage the local residents of the city to make protection their priority while riding motor-cycles. As protective headgears make sure the rider is protected against any uncertainty likewise it is important to use helmets which are ISI marked. We feel such initiatives help keep the locals aware of the important role played by protective gears in safeguarding the rider as well as the pillion.

Often the chief wage earner is the one riding the two-wheeler, making it imperative for them to adopt a ‘responsible behaviour’ by placing emphasises on their own ‘protection’, not only for themselves but also for their loved ones. To reiterate the importance of protective gears, SBI Life along with Lucknow Traffic Police undertook a public awareness drive with an aim to bring a behavioural change among the locals and encourage them to responsibly pursue their ambitions and that of their loved ones.” He further added, “At SBI Life, we aim to foster a mindset that balances this ambitious spirit with a sense of responsibility, prioritizing safety alongside the pursuit for dreams.
