352 died in mishaps despite ‘lockdowns’

2 dead in Shuwaikh accident

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 10: Despite the long closures, partial and total lockdowns, and the relative lack of movement on the roads during the past year due to the outbreak of the “Corona” virus, the General Traffic Department confirmed 352 deaths due to non-compliance with traffic rules and regulations.

The Directorate General of Public Relations and Security Media Department of the Interior Ministry stated most traffic accidents occur as a result of speeding, stubbornness, and speaking and texting while driving and crossing the red traffic light.

Those who escape death often suffer from severe life injuries and in most cases complete paralysis. In other news, Minister of Interior Sheikh Thamer Al-Ali has issued instruction to open the door for registration again for those wishing to join the Saad Al-Abdullah Academy for Security Sciences ‘batch of 47’ for high school graduates for the 2017-2018 academic years starting from Sunday, Jan 10 until Saturday, Jan 16, 2021, via the Academy website.

The ministry said in a statement the application for admission should be submitted with all the required documents and sent to the Registration and Admission Department after electronic registration.
