The Indian Government is already overloaded with a large amount of work .Hence, the government could be helped by the youth by stating them simple solutions for the various big issues. The objective of the college is to state simple and feasible solutions to the most common problems concerned with road safety which can highly reduce the frequency of accidents.
Under this activity, the colleges are required to fulfill the gaps in the infrastructures in the nearby areas.
The major focus of these activities is to fulfill the gaps of the infrastructure by developing a feasible solution to the same and getting it implemented by the governmental authorities.
The project can be done in 2 areas:-
In the radius of 1 Km around the college premises.

Changes that can be done:-
Placing of the road signs where they should be located but they are not present.
