Pre-Gawai Reminder on Road Safety
May 27, 2014
Keeping families safe over the harvest celebrations
SARAWAK, Miri – Make sure you wear your seat belt when you’re on the road, whether you’re a passenger or the driver! This strong message was demonstrated through the seat-belt convincer, a machine that simulates impacts of car crash at an event held to remind the public on the importance of keeping safe on our roads.
The pre-Gawai holiday road safety campaign and exhibition at Miri Airport was launched today. Themed ‘A Safe Journey Awaits a Happy Family’, the event is held annually to remind the Miri public to continue their road journey safely.
Jointly organised by Shell Malaysia, Malaysia Airports and Awan Inspirasi, the campaign was officiated by Datuk Halimah Mohamed Sadique, Deputy Minister of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government, Malaysia.
Halimah commended the effort in organising the road safety campaign which was timely in view of the heavy traffic over the school holidays and festive season as the nation observes the Gawai and Kaamatan celebrations.
According to Halimah, road deaths are a silent epidemic – a quiet, unnecessary killer of our citizens which can be minimised through road-safe behaviour. “Let us commit to work together to prevent these needless deaths and injuries on our roads,” she urged.
Apart from the 3 joint organisers, 5 government agencies took part in the exhibition: the Road Safety Department (JKJR), Traffic Police (PDRM), Road Transport Department (JPJ); public defence and occupational safety and health departments.
Present at the event was Ahmad Lai Bujang, Member of Parliament P.218 Sibuti; Lt. General Datuk Hanif Darimi, Awan Inspirasi Chief Executive Officer; Haji Nor Bashah, Malaysia Airports Miri Manager; and Victor Maiyor, Sarawak Shell Maintenance Services Manager.
