Acting Undersecretary of the Ministry of Interior, Lieutenant General Sheikh Salem Al-Nawaf, emphasized the importance of collective efforts to reduce traffic accidents, particularly those caused by motorists using mobile phones while driving, which leads to significant loss of life.

Speaking during the opening of the 37th Unified Gulf Traffic Week, held under the slogan “Driving without a phone,” Lieutenant General Al-Nawaf highlighted the societal role played by companies, private entities, and the media in supporting these events and transmitting their activities. He conveyed the greetings and appreciation of Sheikh Fahd Al-Yousef, the Prime Deputy Minister, Minister of Defense, and Acting Minister of Interior, praising their support for traffic safety initiatives.

Major General Yousef Al Khadda, the Acting Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic and Operations Affairs, expressed gratitude for the support of Sheikh Fahd Al-Yousef and Lieutenant General Sheikh Salem Al-Nawaf for the traffic safety agenda. He emphasized the importance of this year’s theme, “Leadership… Without a Phone,” in reducing accidents caused by mobile phone use while driving, and thanked sponsoring companies and media outlets for their role in raising awareness and reducing traffic accidents.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, Lieutenant General Salem Al-Nawaf and Major General Yousef Al-Khadda honored the entities supporting the Traffic Week activities and the media for their contributions to the success of the event.

Additionally, Lieutenant General Sheikh Salem Al-Nawaf met with Judge Dr. Hatem Ali, the Regional Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime for the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, at the Ministry of Interior.
