Maersk Oil Qatar (MOQ) supported Qatar’s National Day by spreading road safety awareness at the annual celebrations at Darb Al Saai, which concluded yesterday.
Thousands of students and young adults learnt about positive road behaviours by internationally-accredited defensive driving instructors during the event.
‘Students for Road Safety’ is owned by MOQ and the Traffic Department, within the Ministry of Interior, as part of the national One Second road safety brand.
The programme aims to transform 12 to 18 year old students into road safety ambassadors through interactive presentations and training in a state of the art simulator, which was stationed at the Traffic Village at Darb Al Saai.
The driving simulator includes a full real car cockpit, and an advanced display system with a wraparound screen. A custom-made traffic artificial intelligence engine reflects common behaviours on Qatar’s roads like tail-gating, failure to indicate, flashing lights and cutting across cars at roundabouts. Students who participated in the simulator training session received a comprehensive results report that analyses their driving behaviours.
