Risky driving is more noticeable in school zones: QU-KDS study

Tribune News Network
Risky driving is “more noticeable in the school zones,” a study conducted by the public transport company Mowsalat, represented by Karwa Driving School (KDS), and Qatar University, has revealed.
The study titled ‘Identifying the personal attributes of professional drivers in Qatar’ attributes risky driving behaviour to transportation mode, years of driving experience, and personal attitude.
Expressing concern over the risky driving behavioural pattern in school zones, the study has stressed the need for training programmes to professionalise drivers through different professional driving schools in the country.
The survey was conducted by sampling nonprofessional and professional drivers to analyse the traffic safety culture among them.
The study was done with the help of International Association of Traffic and Safety Sciences (IATSS).
Eng Saad bin Ahmed al Mohannadi, chairman of Mowasalat stated that “With FIFA 2022 fast approaching, the road designs and structures in Qatar are changing and sustainable road and transportation network is being implemented to enhance traffic safety and reduce traffic congestion. Meanwhile, Mowasalat is educating drivers on the concept of traffic safety and enhancing their driving skills through KDS’ programmes.”
