Cairo – 10 May 2017: A traffic school for children was inaugurated on Tuesday in Damanhur city of Beheira governorate with the aim of instilling a conscientious sense of traffic culture, discipline and driving etiquette at a young age.
Governor of Beheira Nadia Abdo, Beheira Security Director’s Alaa Al-deen Shawky, General Ali Abol Yazeed, General Abdel Azeez Khedr, and Beheira’s Head of Investigations Mohamed Kherisa all attended the opening.
The inaugurated traffic school has miniature streets, traffic signals, and small vehicles specifically designed for children.
Youngsters will join the school and learn traffic guidelines according to their ages; an age-specific curriculum has already been established assigning children to courses that will be lectured by professional traffic officers. Children will consequently apply what they learned on small special-made cars, Beheira Security Director Alaa Al-deen Shawky says.
