ATCUAE Collaborates with MOI in Traffic Awareness and Road Safety Campaign
As part of its continued
effort to promote road safety, the Automobile & Touring Club of the UAE
(ATCUAE) is collaborating with the Ministry of Interior (MOI) to promote its traffic
awareness campaign under the slogan "Our Students are our
Responsibility" prior to the start of the new academic year.
The campaign aims at controlling road speed, promoting traffic safety, and reducing pedestrian accidents. It aims to increase road safety knowledge among students of all ages, especially young impressionable children, focusing on the importance of adhering to traffic laws.
ATCUAE President Mohammed Ben Sulayem said: “Firstly, I would like to congratulate our students, parents and teaching staff on the occasion of the new academic year. We all need to collaborate in preserving the safety of our students and providing them with a stable environment and safe roads”.
“There is an urgent need to raise awareness and promote traffic safety among students of all ages, as well as their parents and other road users. More effort needs to be focused by all entities concerned with road safety on the importance of adhering to traffic laws and instructions” added Ben Sulayem.
The MOI campaign includes activities and lectures within the Khalifa Student Empowerment Program, with the aim of raising awareness of entities in charge of student transport. It also promotes awareness in families to urge them to incubate traffic awareness in their children from a young age. It also includes numerous awareness tips and messages across different media outlets.
