GCC traffic week
The unified GCC traffic week 2018 aims at guiding motorists about safe driving, a ranking officer of the Ministry of Interior said yesterday. The week-long activity due on March 11-15 will feature various programs for driving guidance with no focus on issuing tickets, said the acting assistant undersecretary for traffic affairs, Major General Fahad Al-Shuwaie, in a statement. The campaign has already begun via the press, various audio-visual media and communication means as well as the social media. The GCC traffic week was first launched in 1984.
The traffic department announced that a delegation from the GCC Standardization Authority visited the car technical inspection department and checked the work procedure in its departments. The delegation lauded Kuwait’s private car inspection companies as they visited one of them. Several joint issues in car inspections were discussed.
Meanwhile, the traffic public relations and awareness, in cooperation with Health, Safety, Security and Environment Department at Kuwait Petroleum Corporation (KPC), conducted a lecture on safe driving recently. Major Abdallah Bahman, Lieutenant Abdallah Buhassan and Sargent Hamad Eidan spoke about traffic men’s supervision, guidance and organizational roles, and explained how dangerous it is to use the mobile phone while driving, as well as over-speeding. They also cautioned against parking in the disabled designated areas.
