In remembrance of Qatar’s National Day, that marks the 18th of December every year, a number of Qatari organizations celebrate the occasion through a host of activities and happenings, at the event’s main address, Darb Al-Saai.

To that end, ORYX GTL Ltd. has joined hands with the Traffic Department and ‘Engineering Solutions’ to present a road-safety awareness training campaign. The campaign featured a 100% Qatari-made driving simulator, which saw guests at Darb Al-Saai enjoy for the duration of the event.

The campaign, aimed at youth between 13 and 21 years old, witnessed the participation of over 1,000 visitors from all nationalities and genders. Campaign officials pointed out the uniqueness of the advanced simulator technology, which is 100% Qatari-made. The simulator is manufactured by ‘Engineering Solutions,’ a Qatari company that is a leader in the field of road-safety awareness in Qatar. Engineering Solutions has worked closely with the traffic department in the past on similar awareness campaigns. The company is known to be the sole manufacturer of advanced driving simulators in the MENA region.
