Chairman of Kuwait Society for Traffic Safety and a member of the Higher Traffic Council Dr Bader Al-Matar stressed the importance of allotting a traffic plan to control traffic congestion especially in times of rain and bad weather.

In a press release, Dr Al-Matar insisted on the need to be careful when driving under bad weather conditions, indicating different dangerous aspects that could lead to traffic accidents such as heavy rains that make the roads slippery and heavy fog which reduces the visibility. He said securitymen should be present to control the traffic situation on the main and inner roads as well as at the intersections. Dr Al-Matar urged all citizens and expatriates to be careful and to take into consideration the unstable weather conditions while driving.

Emphasizing on the increasing number of deaths due to traffic accidents, he urged all relevant official and civil bodies to organize awareness campaigns to inform road users about the proper way of driving and using the roads. Al-Matar affirmed that Kuwait Society for Traffic Safety organizes such campaigns regularly to remind road users about traffic instructions and regulations. And, the General Traffic Department conducted surprise campaigns in the six governorates last week, resulting in the issuance of 34,611 citations, impounding of 1,022 vehicles and 42 motorbikes, and referral of 21 people to the traffic jail for committing serious traffic offenses.

The campaigns also led to the deportation of four expatriates for driving without a license, whereas the traffic patrol (smart patrol) recovered 32 vehicles wanted by law as they were used in committing different crimes. The department affirmed that the campaigns will continue, urging all road users to fully abide by the traffic regulations to ensure the safety of everyone.
