The National Traffic Safety Committee and Qatar University (QU) intend to launch the “Traffic Safety Award” programme to support and promote the vision and objectives of Qatar National Road Safety Strategy 2013-2022.
In this context, the QU, represented by Qatar Transportation and Traffic Safety Centre at the College of Engineering, and Abdullah Abdulghani & Bros (Toyota) signed an agreement to support the award programme in the framework of co-operation with various sectors to support road safety.
The Dean of the College of Engineering Dr Khalid Kamal Naji said that this agreement recognises the role of Qatar Transportation and Traffic Safety Center and its contribution in finding practical solutions to improve transport and traffic safety, and raise awareness, and the launching of specific initiatives in this regard.
Secretary of the National Traffic Safety Committee Brigadier Mohamed Abdullah al-Malki pointed out that Qatar has achieved a leading position in the field of traffic safety through low mortality rate, stressing the country has intensified its efforts and initiatives to be a leader in the field of traffic safety.
The Director of Qatar Transportation and Traffic Safety Centre Dr Faris Tarlochan said that traffic safety programmes, campaigns and studies are one of the key areas currently being developed by the college, in co-operation with many concerned institutions and in partnership with the actors in this field in order to provide quality work to support the national strategy for traffic safety.
Qatar registered a new world record last year in reducing traffic fatalities, which amounted to 4.9 deaths per 100,000 population, compared to 5.4 recorded in 2017.
