Targeting children for campaigns that teach them how to stay safe on roads is an important step towards reducing road fatality rates in the country.
As part of this initiative, the Brunei Darussalam Red Crescent Society (BDRCS) in collaboration with the Ministry of Communications and Insurance Islam TAIB, yesterday launched a Road Safety Pledge Programme at Raja Isteri Pengiran Anak Damit Girls Arabic Religious Secondary School (SUAMPRIPAD).
The chief guest at the event was Insurans Islam TAIB Marketing Manager Hj Abd Majid bin Hj Hidup.
Also in attendance were SUAMPRIPAD's Deputy Principal (Academic), Ustazah Sarimah binti Ahmad, senior officers and teachers.
The event began with a parade around the school compound by the school's Red Crescent Unit followed by a talk on the Road Safety Pledge delivered by a representative of BDRCS, Capt (RC) Aneta Yusuf.
She said that schools can equip students to become responsible and knowledgeable drivers in the future by teaching them the right culture and values.
She reminded road users to adhere to traffic rules and regulations and follow the five fundamental rules of road safety, namely, wearing seat belts, observing the speed limit and not using mobile phones while driving, using pedestrian walkways and avoid tailgating.
More importantly, those who made road safety pledges should do their part in increasing road safety awareness by reminding friends, parents or relatives to drive or use the road in responsible ways.
After the talk, the event followed with a mass recitation of the Road Safety Pledge led by the Red Crescent Society and a presentation of banners and pledge cards to the school by the chief guest.
Students then signed their pledge cards while teachers registered their pledges online at www.bruneiredcrescent.com/roadsafetypledge/.

Rimba II Secondary School (SM Rimba II) yesterday became the latest of secondary schools nationwide to pledge its support for the Road Safety Programme 2012, an international programme which was introduced by the International Federation of Red Crescent Society five years ago to outline the responsibility in providing knowledge on road safety.
Road accidents cause losses not only in the form of psychological effects and risks to the victims and family members, but also to the economy of the country. Therefore the Red Crescent Society, especially at the Asean level, is working together with IFRC to come up with a number of awareness programmes for road safety following the needs and requirements of each respective country.
Currently, the Red Crescent Society of the Brunei-Muara District, with the cooperation of the Brunei National Road Safety Council, has come up with the Road Safety Pledging programme to instil the culture of road safety and to inject the students to be an agent of road safety messages for people around them.
The five main fundamental rules that need to be addressed are wearing seat belts, observing the speed limit, not using mobile phones while driving, using pedestrian walkways and avoiding tailgating.
Each school's Red Crescent unit continues to play an important role in monitoring the programmes in each school. Yesterday saw the Principal of Rimba II Secondary School, Hjh Suriani binti Hj Hashim leading the way in making the pledge for road safety.

She also revealed, "Red Crescent Society of Brunei-Muara will continue to come up with an action plan in cooperation with the Road Safety Council and strategic partners in the corporate sector to create a co-curriculum activity through various educational activities to raise awareness on road safety through the department of co-curriculum education under the Ministry of Education next year." The students also read out the road safety oaths and then made their pledges on www.bruneiredcrescent.com/roadsafetypledge/.

BAIDURI Finance Berhad extended the deadline for its upcoming treasure hunt-themed 'Walkabout for a cause' event which will be held on November 18, 2012, at the Jerudong Park Playground.

The event is the finale of the ongoing road safety awareness campaign that was launched in conjunction with the annual World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims by the Ministry of Communications and Baiduri Bank Berhad. The campaign is headed by Baiduri Finance and facilitated by the Brunei National Road Safety Council (BNRSC).

Other co-campaigners include the Brunei Automobile Traders Association (PPAB), General Insurance Association of Brunei Darussalam (GIAB), Takaful Am Brunei Sdn Bhd, Insurance Islam TAIB Sdn Bhd, The Red Crescent Society of Brunei and the Co-curriculum Department of the Ministry of Education (MoE).

During a press conference held yesterday, Business Development Manager Hj Mohd Rayme Hj Bakri addressed the media where he mentioned that the registration date for the Walkabout event is extended to the event day on November 18.

Upon registration, participants will receive a Quest Card, a bottle of water, a sticker to signify their category. For those who have registered under the Family category (maximum of four members per group) they will be given a red sticker, participants in the Open Below 18 years old will receive an amber sticker and those in the Open Above 18 years old (from 1994 onwards) will receive a green sticker.

Registration for the Walkabout event is at 6am on Sunday, November 18. "We advise people to drive safe to the event... We also encourage car pooling for the participants," said Hj Mohd Rayme.

Additionally, students who register in the Under 18 category will get to register for free. Similarly, students who fall into the Above 18 category will also get to register for free provided that they produce a student identity card from their respective institutions.

On the event day, a warm up session will be conducted before the contest begins. Each category will be flagged off at different times and will have two hours to complete the walkabout.

Within the Jerudong Park Playground, 30 pit stops will be randomly placed throughout the entire route. At each pit stop, participants will face challenges called 'Quests' that will earn participants a point when completed. The 'Quests' will examine participants' knowledge on the road safety awareness campaign, road signs and regulations with a multiple-choice concept.

'Bonus Quests' will also be made available for participants to earn additional points. Winners for each category will be those who accumulate the most number of points. In the event of a draw, the first participant to drop off their quest card in the dropbox will be considered the winner.

Participants are encouraged to wear fancy costumes to stand a chance to win prizes for the best dressed. There will also be prizes for best workout from individuals and/or family.

The Baiduri Bank Group has always been associated with innovation and creativity and this is proven by the numerous accolades that the Baiduri Bank Group has won over the years. "So with this innovation we felt that we wanted to develop something new for the society and also to align with the objectives of the Road Safety Awareness Campaign," said Hj Mohd Rayme.

"Hencethereforth when we design this Walkabout event we wanted it to be not only to increase the awareness of road safety but also to include the elements of fun," he added.

All proceeds from the Walkabout will be donated to charity.

Program ini adalah bagi sama-sama memainkan peranan yang penting bagi menggalas tanggungjawab dalam memberikan pengetahuan terhadap kesan akibat kemalangan jalan raya.
Bagi PBSM Brunei program tersebut diwujudkan untuk mencambahkan budaya beringat-ingat akan keselamatan di jalan raya di samping sasaran kepada pelajar sekolah supaya akan dapat dijadikan agen kepada pemantauan jangan mengambil risiko apabila memandu di jalan raya, dan seterusnya menghormati pengguna jalan raya lain demi mengelakkan terjadinya kemalangan yang bukan saja boleh membahayakan, mencederakan dan merugikan dari segi material tetapi juga boleh mengakibatkan kematian.
Program menyasarkan pelajar sekolah khususnya, kerana unit sekolah PBSM memainkan peranan penting dalam memantau program tersebut di setiap sekolah, di samping menjadikan ahli-ahli PBSM unit sekolah sebagai rakan sebaya bagi mengujudkan satu komuniti belia yang sentiasa peka terhadap keselamatan jalan raya yang dihasratkan untuk membentuk satu masyarakat yang mempunyai budaya beringat-ingat di jalan raya.
