On behalf of WIAA, Executive Chairman Mr. Nitin Dossa said, Since WIAAs prime focus is creating awareness in society about road safety, we have now taken initiative to create awareness about womens safety on roads, in public transport and in public places. With the growing attacks on women in recent times, it is important to create awareness amongst the citizens of Mumbai to build a protective society for women. The rally was unique in the sense that 77 year old Rajkumari S. Kasliwal was the first driver to be flagged off by FIA President Mr. Jean Todt.
