Ahmed bin Saeed visits RTA’s Stand at City Walk, inspects Safety Bus Programme
HH Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, President of the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority, Chairman and Chief Executive of Emirates Airline & Group, and 2nd Vice Chairman of the Dubai Executive Council, visited the stand of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) at the UAE Innovation Month events held by local government entities at City Walk, Dubai. The event, which is themed (Think and Influence), runs from 22 to 28 February 2019. Several officials of participating government departments were in attendance.
During the tour, HH inspected the Smart Safety Bus Programme developed to enhance the traffic awareness of students in Dubai schools. HH attended a briefing by HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of the RTA, about the features and smart apps of the Bus for familiarising students about the principles of traffic safety. The interior and exterior design of the Bus was tailored to assist traffic safety specialists to deliver awareness messages to students and encourage them to comply, such that schools and their surrounds will maintain the zero traffic fatality rate; which has been kept intact over the last seven years.
