LITRAK Hold Road Safety Programme for 200 Kids

ABOUT 200 pupils of SK Bukit Damansara, SK Damansara Jaya 1, SK Sg Penchala and SMK Kelana Jaya attended a road safety programme recently.

The half-day session was organised by Lingkaran Trans Kota Sdn Bhd (Litrak), the highway concessionaire for Lebuhraya Daman-sara–Puchong (LDP) and Sprint, the highway concessionaire for Sprint Highway, in collaboration with Perbadanan Putrajaya.

The objective of the programme was to educate the pupils on how to be a safer pedestrian as well as provide tips on conscious bike handling with respect to traffic rules and road safety.

The pupils were divided into eight groups and were taught the basics of road safety in a fun and entertaining manner through various traffic situations.

It required pupils to familiarise themselves with various agencies such as the Police, Ambulance, Fire Brigade, Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research ( and Road Safety Department before they were taught how to ride their bicycles and walk safely on the road at all times.

Litrak chief executive officer Sazally Saidi said the programme was part of the company’s continuous commitment to provide students with valuable skills on road safety that they could apply in their daily lives, especially those cycling along the highway.

“We want them to be safer pedestrians and apply all positive attitudes on the road.

“In the long run, this will help to ensure that pupils become more attentive and responsible road users and reduce the number of fatalities caused by accidents.
