School boy on a bicycle at Shell Traffic Games

Launched in 1957, the Shell Traffic Games, is held annually in partnership with the Road Safety Council (Majlis Keselamatan Jalan Raya) and various government agencies like the police, education departments, road transport department and local authorities as well as auxiliary bodies.
Held in most state capitals and practically every district and division in Sabah and Sarawak, the games are conducted on a specially equipped site in a safe location using pedal cars, bicycles and pedestrians. More than a million young Malaysian road users have taken part in the games since its inception.

As part of the programme, participating schools are required to pass written tests on read safety. In subsequent practical or on-road tests, participants are awarded merit points for complying with road safety regulations, or conversely given demerits and issued traffic violation summons by real traffic police officers when they break road safety regulations or commit driving offences. Prizes are awarded to winning primary and secondary schools for the best road safety performance.
