The focus of the session was to educate people about the importance of traffic rules and regulations. According to the survey shared, 90% of accidents occur due to the driver, 5% accidents occur due to road conditions and 5% due to vehicle conditions. In addition, it was emphasized that the use of seatbelt for all passengers decreases the fatal injuries by 75%. These statistics become more critical when we look at the fact that approximately 90 % of people travel by road in Pakistan.

Chief Human Resource Officer, PTCL Syed Mazhar Hussain said on this occasion,

“PTCL is extremely involved and cares for the well-being and safety of its employees. We are shaping a movement among our staff about these measures and keeping safety foremost in their minds. Awareness of traffic rules and regulation holds a pivotal importance for safer journey. We will continue our efforts to make safety priority for our employees in all domains as we care for them and consider ourselves as one PTCL family.”

Sohail Mustafa, SPO, NH&MP said

“We would like to thank PTCL for this opportunity as it supports our cause to promote traffic laws, road safety and safe driving. We are hugely encouraged that companies like PTCL are serious in taking precautions and measures to provide awareness and timely information to its employees for their own safety. National Highway & Motorway Police is proud to be an effective force for law abidance and traffic rules observation.”

Through this awareness campaign, PTCL wants its employees do due diligence when traveling on the road. Like any other collective effort, roads cannot be safe unless all members of the society contribute with their actions by showing civic behavior on the road.
