Arab News –  The Saudi Society for Traffic Safety (SALAMH) will launch the 3rd Traffic Safety Forum and Expo 2015 on Monday under the title, “Youth and Traffic Safety,” under the patronage of Eastern Province Gov. Prince Saud bin Naif.
During the three-day event, a total of 30 researchers from 13 countries will present the results of their research in the field of traffic safety and accident prevention.
The forum will be held with the participation of a number of ministries, universities and departments of education in the Kingdom, in order to provide an opportunity for young people to express their ideas and opinions on traffic safety issues, identify the problems and difficulties they face, and propose the appropriate solutions.
The event also aims at analyzing the most important negative behaviors caused by young people while driving, and identifying the best Arab and international experiences for changing the behavior of youths on the roads.
Abdul Hamid Al-Mojil, chairman of the forum, said that the organizing committee received 153 applications presented by researchers and experts in the field of traffic safety through its website from 13 different countries, with a majority from the United States.
After studying the provided research by the organizing committees, about 30 papers were accepted, said Al-Mojil.
He said, “The research is divided into two types: Either describing a well-developed or updated research, or describing ongoing research, with a condition of providing a 500-word summary in Arabic or English.”
The forum chairman said that the selected research will be published in prestigious international academic journals specialized in traffic safety.
The event has three key points: “The young and traffic safety: Reality and challenges,” “Youth and traffic safety: A hopeful role,” and
“Youth and traffic safety: Partnership and national responsibility,” he added.
