The RTA collaborated with the Dubai Health Authority as part of the ‘Generations Safety is a Shared Responsibility’ initiative, where a number of child safety seats will be distributed via a daily raffle throughout the week at these hospitals.

“The Traffic Department has prepared an extensive programme to celebrate the week targeting the majority of community segments in Dubai by distributing awareness clippings in cinemas, cashier desks in cooperative societies, shopping centres and RTA’s e-service screens,” said Hussain Al Banna, Director of Traffic, RTA’s Traffic and Roads Agency.

Awareness events for RTA’s public bus drivers and youngsters in some sports clubs have also been organised in collaboration with the Dubai Sports Council. “The department will also spread multitudes of awareness messages through social networking sites affiliated to the RTA and its partners,” added Al Banna.
