(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) In efforts to put responsible youth behind the wheel, The Sultan's School administration and parent teacher association welcomed Hamed al Wahaibi and Ali al Habsi, ambassadors of Safety First, Oman's leading not-for-profit road safety campaigning organisation, onto the school grounds.Graeme Garrett, principal of The Sultan's School, said, ''Almost every one of us at the school knows someone who has lost a loved one as a result of road traffic accidents and trying to raise awareness by simply handing out posters and flyers is no longer effective. We have therefore mobilised our efforts with these Omani role models to drive this important message home to our students.''Oman national team captain and English Premier League star Ali al Habsi said, ''We are all aware of the dangers on the road, but we also believe that it will never happen to us. Through Safety First, our goal is to humanise such risks in order for road users to be conscious of their actions and practise safe driving.''When speaking to the students, Hamed al Wahaibi, international rally champion explained that every hour a person is injured in a car accident and that every eight hours someone loses their life. He said, ''Being safe on the road is a decision made by every person, whether as a driver or a passenger.''
