The Civil Engineering Department, COMSATS University Islamabad (CUI), Wah Campus in partnership with Atlas Honda Ltd, organized a workshop on Road Safety Training for bike users. The objective was to instill a positive change in the conduct of road users, aiming to reduce road accidents and ensure a seamless traffic flow. The Head of Department for Civil Engineering, Dr. Tahir Mahmood extended a warm welcome to the safety managers from Atlas Honda Ltd and the instructors leading the training.

During the workshop, guest speakers emphasized the significant challenges posed by roadside hazards in Pakistan, attributing them to the absence of well-defined safety standards. They underscored the urgent need for acknowledging the road safety crisis and advocated for the active involvement of both the public and private sectors in addressing the issue. The speakers stressed that the current efforts fall short of the scale of the problem, emphasizing the necessity for allocating adequate resources to enhance and implement safety measures.

To engage the audience, a question-and-answer session was arranged, focusing on road safety measures. As a gesture of appreciation, safety helmets were presented to the winners, courtesy of Atlas Honda Ltd. The hands-on Road Traffic Training (including motorcycle and driving simulator sessions) saw enthusiastic participation from both male and female students. The event concluded with the presentation of a souvenir from CUI Wah Campus to the guest speakers with a vote of thanks.
