UNIVERSITI Sains Malaysia (USM) held a one-day road safety campaign on Wednesday to encourage motorists on campus to buckle up in the back seat.
It was organised by the university’s Security Depart-ment and Penang Road Safety Department (JKJR). The officials handed out leaflets and car stickers at the institution’s three main gates in Minden, Penang.
Penang JKJR deputy director Roziah Aziz said: “As the rear seat belt ruling has just been enforced in January, there are many who still forget to buckle up.
“We are here to remind staff members and students of the new ruling and also distribute reflective stickers to motorcyclists to make them more visible on the road.”
She added that 500 stickers had been prepared for USM motorists.
Present to help out in the campaign were USM registrar Azman Abdullah, Secu-rity Department director Norizan Khalid and 60 members of the university’s un-dergraduate police volunteer corps (Suksis).
