Oct 10, 2014
KUCHING, The annual flagship road safety educational programme – Shell Traffic Games (STG) gathered over 350 students, representing their respective divisions at the state-level STG at the Kenyalang Park Traffic Garden here today.
The State-level games were flagged off by Mohd Sharkawi Askar from the education department and Peing Tajang, Shell Malaysia upstream communications senior manager.
The students, aged between 10 and 14, moved on to the state-level after emerging as winners at their divisional-level Games held from May this year where more than 3,000 students from 11 primary and 11 secondary schools throughout Sarawak participated.
The Games are organised annually by Shell in partnership with the Sarawak Road Safety Council and government agencies, the Education department, local councils, the Police as well as the Road Transport Department.
Every year from March to October, some 20,000 Malaysian schoolchildren nation-wide and over 2,000 teachers, traffic police officers and other officials participate in this extensive road safety educational programme.
First introduced in Peninsula Malaysia, more than a million Malaysian road-users have benefited from the STG. It was introduced in Sarawak in 1963.

About Shell traffic games
A major educational tool in road safety awareness for the young in Malaysia, Shell Traffic Games (STG) represent Shell’s commitment towards the safety of road users particularly those in schools for over five decades.
Launched in 1957 in Malaya and was introduced in Sarawak in 1963, STG 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, STG is conducted on a specially equipped site in a safe location using pedal cars, bicycles and pedestrians.
It is estimated that 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 road 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.
