The GCC Traffic week aims to enhance awareness among the public on the importance of road safety, through organising many traffic events and activities that highlight the danger of speeding and its impact on individuals and community.
It consolidates the efforts and synergies of traffic departments in the member states towards traffic safety, which is a collective responsibility.
