Bengaluru: An NGO in Bengaluru is planning to launch a ‘no honking challenge’ through which the organisation intends to raise awareness about the ill effects of honking.
The first part of the campaign #Bengaluru100KmsNoHonkingChallenge will begin on September 29.
It will see the participation of citizens from 9am to 11am at GPO Junction near Vidhana Soudha. They will stand on the footpath with placards in their hands carrying messages discouraging irresponsible honking.
Speaking to TOI, Rajkumar Dugar, founder of Citizens 4 Citizens (C4C), said, “Honking near educational institutions and hospitals at any time, and also residential areas at night, is banned. Unfortunately, most of us honk indiscriminately without bothering about the harm we are causing. Motorists should only honk to save themselves or the people around them. ”
“People should decide not to honk for at least 100 kilometres in one stretch. If anyone happens to honk for any reason, he/she should restart the 100 km count from zero,” he added.
