These campaigns, he said, are not just targeted toward lowering mortality rates but also reducing injury rates and that the latest campaign is just the beginning of many to come to create awareness not only to Qataris but also on expatriates. We are now focusing on children, but we will also be concentrating on adolescents and other categories of the society in the future, said SCH Director of Public Health Dr Mohammed Al Thani, adding since 2006 mortality rates on the road have decreased significantly because of the campaigns. Director of Traffic Department Brigadier Mohammed Saad Al Kharji, emphasised use of seatbelts should become a habit and should not just be done in the presence of police. We hope this campaign would improve safety on roads, avoid accidents and decrease mortality rate, said Brig Al Kharji, adding he hoped there would be laws in the future which would make it obligatory to wear seatbelts even at the back seat. Not only children but also adults should use seatbelts even at the back seat. Accidents cost the government lots of money, he said. In 2006, Brig Al Kharji said, deaths on roads reached 270 and with the increase in population together with the number of vehicles with the number of licenses issued at108,000 last year, this would further rise to more than 400, posing a big challenge for them.
