KUWAIT CITY, March 11: The GCC Traffic Week will kick off on Sunday, March 12 under the slogan “Your Life is Faith”. In a press statement issued by Ministry of Interior, the General Department of Public Relations and Security media affirmed that the campaign is aimed as an awareness and guidance program to highlight the negative traffic elements such as traffic violations and traffic accidents, and stress the importance of the traffic safety of Kuwaiti citizens and expatriates.
