The church of Mar-Mina in the city of Port Said on the northern tip of the Suez Canal has treated its pre-school children to a visit to the Traffic Administration to learn basic driving skills.
They were received by Colonel Muhammad Basssla, Director of Port Said Traffic Administration, who cheerfully welcomed them and gave them candy.
The driving lessons then began. The children were taught driving ethics and etiquette, especially respect of traffic lights. Then it was time to learn driving practically.
Traffic Administration trainers taught the children to drive maximum-safety electric cars on the mini-square set up especially for that purpose. The square is equipped with zebra lines for safe crossing, traffic lights, guide posts, and marked lanes. The children spent a memorable day.
Colonel Basssla says that the aim of the training was to plant traffic awareness and ethics in children early on, so they never lose sight of them.
