Rapidly social changes are creating uncertainty and intricacy in the society. The greatest need of the hour is to reform curriculum, textbooks, teaching methodology and children’s literature, formal and non-formal educational systems. It is a moral duty on the part of children to learn traffic rules and to act accordingly to avoid danger and to attain proper safety. Present study focused on the perception of parents and teachers about traffic education and its inclusion in secondary school curriculum. 100 teachers were selected randomly from 25 schools (4 from each school) and 100 parents were also selected from these school. Data were collected with the help of a well-designed questionnaire. Descriptive statistical technique was used for data analysis about one-third (32.0%) of the respondents (parents) were strongly agreed and 26.0 percent of them were agreed that they felt that the subject ‘traffic education’ should be included in the curriculum. Only 5.0% of the respondents (parents) were strongly agreed and 43.0% of them were agreed with the thinking that the traffic education should be the part of curriculum as a separate subject. It was found that most of the teachers were agreed that the subject ‘traffic education’ should be included in the curriculum.
