Khel Today Bureau 

Mumbai: The Road Safety World Series announces the launch of the inaugural ‘No Honking Twenty20 Series’, a unique initiative aimed at creating awareness on the growing urgency of providing a safer environment on roads in India. The three-match series, which gets underway from September 16th to 18th, 2023 at the at the Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose ground at Mira-Bhayandar (West), will feature three teams from India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. Fans and cricket lovers can catch the live action of ‘No Honking Twenty20 Series’ on DD Sports and Eurosport India.

The ‘No Honking Twenty20 Series’ is an extension of the popular Road Safety World Series, supported by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways and the Ministry of Information & Technology and Youth Affairs & Sports Government of India. The series is a unique concept featuring India Legends, Sri Lanka Legends and Bangladesh Legends all converging for a single cause – to promote a safer environment on the roads while also focusing on reducing noise levels through extreme honking, a serious concern in the country.

Speaking about the ‘No Honking Twenty20 Series, Shri. Mr. Ravi Gaikwad, Chief of RTO Thane (Konkan Range), Government of Maharashtra, said, “The ‘No Honking Twenty20 Series’ is an incredible initiative by RSWS to raise awareness and reduce this rising concern on the road through influential cricket legends and celebrities. As responsible citizens of this country, it’s paramount for us to be aware of the dangers of noise pollution through extreme honking. I strongly believe that this series will be able to achieve this goal as we collectively aim to limit the number of casualties on the road and curb noise pollution to addressable levels in India.”

Mr Sanjay Katkar, Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation (MBMC), said, The cricket series is an effort to spread awareness and educate people around the security and road safety protocols. The government and other administrative bodies involved in road safety are in complete support of the initiative. People will witness cricketing world legends as they extend their gratitude and support for the movement to educate people through their messages around noise pollution and road mishaps.”

Sangeet Shirodkar, Co-founder & CEO, 1Stadia, said“The ‘No Honking Twenty20 Series’ is a property created to drive a social cause and the support we have received from the Government and all quarters has been very encouraging. The proposition of taking this forward lies in every individual together with legends of the game as they pledge to create not just a successful sporting event, but a movement to reduce the casualties and noise pollution on the roads.”

The ‘No Honking Twenty20 Series aims to reduce the continuous honking on Indian roads, which currently stands at over 85 decibels. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the prescribed limits of 55 decibels needs to be maintained. With cricket being a religion in the country, this League will work as an ideal platform to influence and change people’s mind set towards their behaviour on the roads.

WHY ROAD SAFETY?

In India, one person dies in every four minutes. Every hundred people dying in the world, 30 are Indians. It is more alarming that as per the World Research Institute, the death toll in road accidents every year will reach up to 2.2 million and 50 per cent will be Indians. Every year around 150000 people are killed and more than 450000 people are critically injured in our country in road accidents.
