The 34th Traffic Week, which was held at Darb Al Saai recently, brought together some of Qatar’s largest driving schools and other organisations partnering with the General Directorate of Traffic.
The participation came as the General Directorate of Traffic once again “showed its commitment and collaboration with partners to realise the vision of spreading awareness on road safety in the country”, a press statement noted.
Major Jaber Mohamed Rashid Odaiba, assistant director of the Media and Traffic Awareness Department, General Directorate of Traffic, said: “The General Directorate of Traffic aims to spread awareness on road safety and realise the National Road Safety Strategy. In this regard, we co-operate with our stakeholders through different awareness campaigns, and are very pleased to partner with Engineering Solutions and the participating driving schools in the 34th Traffic Week.”
Engineering Solutions QSTP is a technical development and technology deployment company established in 2010 within the Qatar Science and Technology Park. Its areas of expertise include driving and road safety.
The driving schools participating in the event included Dalla Driving Academy, Al-Hasba Driving School, Qatar Driving Learning Institute, United Driving Academy and Doha Driving Academy. The participants were keen to reach out to visitors by answering their queries on road safety, or by offering training sessions on the “state-of-the-art” driving simulator provided by Engineering Solutions, the statement added.
At the event, officials highlighted the “uniqueness of the advanced technology of a 100% Qatari-made” simulator, manufactured by Engineering Solutions. The company is the sole manufacturer of advanced driving simulators in the Mena region.
Raffat Zreik, Operations manager at Engineering Solutions, said: “Our main priority is road safety as we strive to realise the Qatar National Road Safety Strategy. We are delighted to have co-operated with the General Directorate of Traffic and the participating driving schools during the Traffic Week.”
Hassan Nassar, manager of Dalla Driving Academy, added: “We are proud to have participated in the Traffic Week, where we had the chance to assume our role in realising the Qatar National Road Safety Strategy and spread awareness on such an important topic. We would like to extend our gratitude to the General Directorate of Traffic for the outstanding initiatives it executes in this regard.”
