A number of community-based traffic initiatives were launched on Sunday when the 30th GCC Traffic Week 2014 began in Abu Dhabi.

The event started under the patronage of Lt-General Shaikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior; and Lt-General Saif Abdullah Al Sha’far, Undersecretary at the Ministry of Interior under the slogan ‘Our Goal is your Safety’.

As part of the event, videos that tackle various traffic issues will be circulated via mobile phones. The initiatives comprise 12 traffic safety concepts; one for each month. These include: ‘The road belongs to everyone’; ‘Let us be like them’; ‘A baby is in your vehicle’; ‘You are the backbone of this country’; ‘They have the right’; ‘Give them the priority’; ‘Respect my traffic culture’; ‘On the studying bench’; ‘Your goal is construction not destruction’; ‘A bus on the road’; and ‘The traffic creativity council’.

Brigadier Eng. Hussein Ahmed Al Harithi, Director of Traffic and Patrols Directorate at Abu Dhabi Police, stated that traffic safety is one of the most important issues worldwide.

Higher officials also honoured exemplary male and female police officers, and the winners of the four social categories aiming to decrease traffic accidents.
