Director-General of Traffic Brigadier Muhammad Abdullah Al-Shahwani said that the awareness campaign aims to enhance security during camping in general to achieve safety for the campers and visitors, stressing that the department and all participating parties will intensify their efforts to serve the campers, citizens and visitors in the Sealine area and all camping places.

He indicated that a committee was formed to plan, supervise and follow up to ensure a safe camping season and called on everyone to adhere to the procedures and rules for camping, especially those related to traffic rules and regulations.

In turn, the Ministry of Interior's Lt. Col. Mohammad bin Jassim Al-Thani referred to the Sealine Committee's measures to reduce traffic accidents during the camping season. He also noted that there are strategic objectives for the Traffic Department to deal with traffic accidents, pointing out that an operational plan has been developed to raise the level of traffic safety in the Sealine area.
