Training workshops to be held will focus on how to protect family members from traffic accidents, and stress the importance of having a child seat onboard along with the use of the safety belt.

Parking inspectors and traffic awareness team supervisors in the Agency will be deployed in several main car-parks in Dubai to distribute complimentary juices to drivers coupled with small gifts including key information about safe driving. “Main events of the Week will start on Tuesday by a reception ceremony for GCC delegates, and honouring university students taking part in the Best Awareness Design of Driving Distracters in the presence of several entities concerned in the field of traffic safety.
