The Traffic Department and the Ministry of Interior of the State of Qatar have saved no effort into crafting an annual road awareness programme that brings together young and adults to better understand the importance of road morals. The GCC Traffic Week is one in a series of initiatives which are being organized year on year. Others include the Schools without Accidents campaign reaching out to students and promoting knowledge of safety on the road."
