The General Directorate of Traffic at Dubai Police have organized an awareness lecture in cooperation with ZAJEL (a UAE courier company) targeting motorcycle delivery riders of companies and restaurants.
The aim is to increase drivers’ awareness on traffic safety laws to help protect their lives on the road.
110 courier bike drivers attended the lecture that was a part of Dubai Police’s ‘Sudden Deviation’ campaign to reduce traffic accidents.
Dubai Traffic Police said that the lecture is part of a nationwide campaign that will raise awareness among motorists, motorcyclists and all road users on the danger of sudden deviation, a major cause of traffic accidents.
The possible reasons are that they are not paying attention, tyre explosion, lack of clear knowledge of the road, over speeding or using mobile phones while driving.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of ZAJEL Khawla Kabanji said, “This is a special occasion for us to bring awareness to our bike couriers who reach clients across the UAE.”
