Around 100 students from 20 independent boy schools in Doha participated in a training workshop recently held by CENG Qatar Transportation and Traffic Safety Center (QTTSC).

Themed “Traffic Safety Ambassadors”, the workshop is organized in coordination with the Ministry of Interior and the National Committee for Traffic Safety, and sponsored by Qatar Petrochemical Company (QAPCO). It aimed to spread the culture of traffic safety among high school students.

Ambassadors are expected to run workshops, campaigns and sessions within their schools to raise awareness on the importance of traffic safety. By the end of the academic year, each school will present a report on its activities.

Attendees included General Directorate of Traffic Awareness Section Head First Lieutenant Fahd Al-Abdullah and General Directorate of Traffic Studies Section Head Captain Ali Al-Ettabah, as well as CENG and QTTSC faculty and staff.

The participating students were oriented by staff members from QU and the General Directorate of Traffic on various procedures to run traffic safety campaigns at schools.

Commenting on the event, CENG Dean and QTTSC Director Dr Khalifa Al-Khalifa said: “Through this initiative, QTTSC strives to involve high school students in spreading traffic safety culture within the community, in line with the objectives of the National Strategy for Traffic Safety 2013-2022. This showcases the center’s commitment to encourage students to create awareness programs and to provide solutions that tackle traffic safety challenges in Qatar.”
