Abu Dhabi Declaration on Traffic Safety in 3 months

 1 April 2006

ABU DHABI — The international organisation for Prevention of Road Accidents will issue the Abu Dhabi Declaration on Traffic Safety within the next three months. 

The declaration will outline the global strategy on the issue for the next four years. It will include the recommendations spelled out at the 10th International Congress for Traffic Safety, which concluded at the Emirates Palace here last Wednesday.

The Congress had, inter alia, recommended focusing on sophisticated technology and smart transport systems, besides exchanging the successful international traffic experiences with the aim of reducing casualties in traffic accidents to the minimum. It had called for adopting solutions to resolve the problem of traffic safety through education, awareness, engineering, control and legislation, and traffic medicine.

 These solutions should be revaluated after being implemented in order to find out how efficient and effective these remedies are. The conference had also noted that the strategies of traffic safety should emanate from clear and comprehensive perspectives, specified and applicable objectives along with evaluating these strategies and improve them as well as removing the obstacles which hamper achievement of goals.

According to Dr Ala'a Al Bakri, Convener of the scientific committee at the conference, the panel will draft the declaration which will fix the mechanisms and standards of the international traffic safety to which all the countries in the world will be committed.
The conference at its concluding session, had cabled its greetings to General Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces for his patronage to the event. It also paid tribute to Lieutenant-General Shaikh Saif bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Interior, for his support to the event.
