World Day Of Remembrance For Road Traffic Victims


 November 25th, 2022  |  09:50 AM  |   127 views





Her Royal Highness Princess Hajah Masna binti Al-Marhum Sultan  Haji Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Sa'adul Khairi Waddien, Ambassador At-Large at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a sabda said that the rate of road accidents shows a downward trend from 3,515 cases in 2017 to 3,400 cases in 2021. Meanwhile, 18 death cases were recorded from January to October this year compared to 16 cases in the same month last year. In the sabda at the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims 2022, her Royal Highness as the Royal Patron of the National Road Safety Council, MKKJR, emphasised that efforts and solid cooperation need to be further enhanced to guarantee safety on the road. The ceremony took place at the Royal Berkshire Hall, Royal Brunei polo and Riding Club, Jerudong, yesterday afternoon.


Her Royal Highness said various programmes have been implemented, but there is still loss of life. Therefore, MKKJR needs to ensure that the Strategic Plan is still relevant and in line to the current situation. At the same time, it is very important that we inculcate awareness about road safety at an early stage, especially to children from primary school. For that purpose, MKKJR in collaboration with the Department of Schools, Ministry of Education has established a Road Safety Club for school students. Initiatives like this need to be supported and continued and it is hoped that it will yield good results. In regard to that, Her Royal Highness has launched the Second Edition of the Safe and Smart Driving in Brunei Darussalam and Buku Bacaan Pendidikan Keselamatan Jalan Raya Bagi Peringkat Rendah or Road Safety Education Reading Book for Primary level.


Her Royal Highness then launched the second edition of 'Safe and Smart Driving in Brunei Darussalam' book and Buku Bacaan Pendidikan Keselamatan Jalan Raya Bagi Peringkat Rendah or Road Safety Education Reading Book for Primary level.


Yang Berhormat Pengiran Dato Seri Setia Shamhary bin Pengiran Dato Paduka Haji Mustapha, Minister of Transport and Infocommunications as Chairman of MKKJR in his welcoming remarks among others shared on the initiatives and programme status that are currently and have been implemented. Yang Berhormat said future traffic safety efforts will focus on changes at the system and infrastructure, as well as influencing individual behaviour. However, each of these methods or approaches has identified that the basic factor in determining the severity of road accidents is speed or in other word, Speed Kills.


Her Royal Highness then presented prizes for the Road Safety Quiz Competition for Secondary Schools and Colleges Nationwide 2022 and Road Safety Video Clips Making for Secondary Schools, Colleges and Sixth Form Centres 2022.


The World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is an international initiative that takes place on the third Sunday in November every year. The initiative is an acknowledgment of victims of road traffic crashes and their families. This year's celebration carries the theme “Justice".
