Children will write it and parents will sign it – let’s take the pledge together towards safer roads. Y calls out for families to join the ‘My Road Safety Pledge’ happening on October 19 at Markaz Al Bahja Mall.
Road safety awareness plays a significant role in shaping the attitudes and behaviours of children and young people – guaranteeing they become responsible drivers, passengers and pedestrians in the future. To teach children from a young age to be aware of the traffic rules and regulations, the Y magazine is once again conducting the ‘My Road Safety Pledge’ competition.
To participate in the competition children will write a ‘My Road Safety Pledge’ on behalf of their parents in a custom-made card distributed along with this edition of Y. The ‘My Road Safety Pledge’ card has a space wherein children can pen the pledge on behalf of their parents.
The Road Safety Pledge has to be counter-signed by their parents as the purpose is also to promote the message of road safety to parents through their children.
The best three pledges will win gift vouchers of RO75 (first place), RO50 (second place) and RO25 (third place).
Once the Road Safety Pledge is written on the supplied card, parents are requested to drop the card at designated drop boxes across Muscat.
Participants can also look forward to an on-ground activation event happening on Friday, October 19 at Markaz Al Bahja Mall where children will colour the cards and take the Road Safety Pledge, with the winners being announced at an upcoming function at the SABCO Media offices in Seeb, where they will receive their prizes.
