Brig. Gen. Wasl Allah Al-Harbi, director of the Jeddah Traffic Department, thanked Community Jameel for the campaign, saying: "We are working with our partners in the private sector to ensure the safety of everyone in the Kingdom. Through awareness campaigns and focused events, it is essential to communicate the necessity to adhere to traffic systems, and buckle up to protect themselves, their families, and society.”
