LINGKARAN Trans Kota Sdn Bhd (LITRAK), the highway concessionaire for Lebuhraya Damansara – Puchong (LDP) and SPRINT, the highway concessionaire for SPRINT Highway in collaboration with Perbadanan Putrajaya, organized a Road Safety Programme to some 200 students of SK Bukit Damansara, SK Damansara Jaya 1, SK Sg Penchala and SMK Kelana Jaya recently as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.
The objective of this program is to educate the students on the safety of being a safer pedestrian and conscious bike handling with respect to traffic rules and road safety. Realizing the huge benefits since it has been a much-acclaimed program and runaway success across many schools in Klang Valley, LITRAK Group without any hesitation has immediately agreed to work out for a collaboration event with Perbadanan Putrajaya. It was indeed a splendid opportunity for the students to experience the indoor activity since they are very vulnerable on the roads and are highly exposed to road traffic crashes.
The half day unique initiative session divided students into 8 different groups and teaches the basics of road safety in a fun and entertaining manner through various traffic situations. It requires student to familiarize themselves with various agencies such as Police, Ambulance, Fire Brigade, Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) and Jabatan Keselamatan Jalan Raya (JKJR) before they were then taught on how to walk and ride on their bike safely on the road at all times.
LITRAK’s Chief Executive Officer, Sazally Saidi said the program was part of the company’s continuous commitment to provide students with valuable skills on road safety that can be applied back in their school especially those along the highway. “Despite our initiative to develop and implement road safety awareness as part of our CSR initiatives, we also want them to be a safer pedestrian and apply all positive attitudes on the road. In the long run, this would help to ensure the student to become more attentive and responsible road user and reduce the number of fatal cases caused by accidents. I must also not forget to express my highest appreciation to Perbadanan Putrajaya for allowing us to experience this wonderful exposure”, he said.
