Road Guru

We, Road Guru (an NGO registered under Indian Trust Act 1882), are involved in educating road users on using roads with utmost safety. In the process, we empower them with knowledge on general safety, road signs, road markings, rules, and acts. We aim to reduce such road accidents in India to the maximum extend possible.
