Engineer Bader Al Siri, Director of the Traffic Department in the authority, said: "Awareness campaigns and programmes help educate youngsters about traffic rules and general safety measures. These camps have a positive impact on parents as they make traffic safety as one of their primary responsibility."

Khawlah Kaitob and Amal Tareq Ali from Traffic Awareness Section in the Traffic Department conducted lectures on safety, which focused on topics like rules to be observed on the school bus.

As a measure of safety, kids less than 10 years were asked to refrain from occupying the front seats on the bus and kids less than three years of age were asked to occupy special seats at the back.

Khawlah Al Kaitob said, "To generate interest and build awareness amongst the children, puppets and cartoon characters were used.
