The National Road Safety Council (MKKJR), under its Strategic Outcome of the Brunei Darussalam Road Safety Strategic Plan 2025 yesterday hosted a briefing on road safety for around 100 civil servants from the Ministry of Transport and Infocommunications (MTIC) and all departments.

Haji Syafien bin Yandol from the Secretariat of the MKKJR in his briefing, said that 100 road safety champions from 13 ministries and private sectors were appointed during the launching ceremony in November 2020.

The briefing highlighted statistics on accidents, ethical driving and road traffic laws. The MKKJR called on all road users to give their full attention while on the road, while observing prudent driving.

“All road users have the joint responsibility and a role in taking care of ourselves and those around us, as well as property. The attitude and culture of prioritising road safety will help to prevent accidents and provide safety for all,” said the MKKJR in its statement.
