On August 28th, 2023, the UAE’s Ministry of Interior, in partnership with Dubai Police, is set to conduct the initiative known as “Accident Free Day.”
An Essential Initiative Unveiling the Significance of Road Safety
To bolster this campaign, the Dubai Police have issued a resounding call for safety via a text/SMS blast, urging residents to commit to safer road practices. This proactive endeavor aligns with the nationwide movement to ensure a seamless commencement of the school year and promote road safety.
The text message states, “Stay Safe Today and Every Day. Join us for safer roads as part of the ‘Accident-Free Day’ campaign, coinciding with August 28th, 2023.” This heartfelt message exemplifies the importance of collective efforts in making roadways secure for all.
August 28th, was a purposefully chosen date as it is the commencement of the new academic year for schools. The campaign encourages unity within the local community, institutions and individuals alike.
This initiative aims to establish a national day dedicated to traffic safety. The campaign reinforces safety measures and conducts extensive awareness campaigns across educational institutions and other private sector firms.
On this significant day, the focus will be on fostering awareness about traffic rules, regulations, and responsible driving practices. Local authorities have consistently emphasized their efforts to spread awareness of road safety throughout 2023.
