A COMMUNITY road safety awareness association was launched in Putrajaya to educate the residents.

Putrajaya Corporation (PPj) president Datuk Dr Aminuddin Hassim, in announcing the setting up of the Putrajaya Community Road Safety Education Association, said its main objective was to organise educational programmes on road safety for the communities in the administrative capital.

Speaking at the launch at Armada Hall in Marina Putrajaya, he said this was most important at the school level.

“The association together with PPj will help spread awareness on road safety to reduce accidents.

“The purpose is to drive community empowerment with relevant agencies to focus on knowledge, action, enforcement and encourage self-regulated Putrajaya citizens in addressing road safety issues here.”Dr Aminuddin said PPj applied for approval from the Federal Territories Ministry and Economic Planning Unit to build a special circuit to educate motorists on road safety.

He said he hoped approval would be given soon so that PPj could get on with its plans to raise awareness among residents on the importance of following traffic regulations.

“The circuit can be used for bicycles, motorcycles and go-carts.

“The community, especially school students, will hopefully learn more on road safety using the circuit,” he said.

From 2015 to 2018, there were 6,543 road accident cases including 36 fatalities in Putrajaya. As of June, there were 880 accidents with one fatality. — By KANIMOLI MANIMARAN
