Have You Entered Y’s Road Safety Competition Yet?

Children will write it and parents will sign it – let’s take the pledge together towards safer roads. Y is calling on families to join the ‘My Road Safety Pledge’ and take part with us on Friday, April 5 at Markaz Al Bahja Mall for a chance to win a top prize!

Road safety awareness plays a significant role in shaping the attitudes and behaviour of children and young people – guaranteeing they become responsible drivers, passengers and pedestrians in the future.

With the highest number of deaths on the road in the GCC, figures for the Sultanate are staggering – with one death for every ten accidents, and 3,845 accidents occurring in 2017 alone, based on the latest available data. Of those incidents, 640 resulted in fatalities.

To teach children from a young age to be aware of traffic rules and regulations, Y Magazine is once again conducting the ‘My Road Safety Pledge’ competition in conjunction with the regional GCC Traffic Week.

To participate in the competition, children will write a ‘My Road Safety Pledge’ on behalf of their parents in a custom-made card. We hope you picked up yours already in the March 7 issue of Y Magazine! The ‘My Road Safety Pledge’ card has a space where 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 a cash reward.

Once the Road Safety Pledge is written on the supplied card, parents are requested to drop the card at designated drop-boxes coming soon across Muscat.

Participants can also look forward to a soon-to-be-announced on-ground activation event where children will colour the cards and take the Road Safety Pledge, with the winners being announced at a special upcoming ceremony where they’ll receive their prizes. More details will be coming soon – so be sure to pick up your latest copy of Y Magazine every week at select locations across Muscat!
