Abu Dhabi: Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak stressed on Monday the importance of launching awareness campaigns to educate teen drivers about potentially severe consequences of fast driving that go beyond traffic tickets and court trials.

Sheikha Fatima, Chairperson of General Women’s Union and of the Family Development Foundation (FDF), also emphasised that protection of youth is the responsibility of everyone as they constitute the pillar of our nation.

While chairing the 3rd meeting of the higher board of FDF, Sheikha Fatima also underlined the need for inculcating among the youth the sense of responsibility as not to speed on the roads endangering their own lives and the lives of others.

During the meeting, she also reviewed a report on the activities of the FDF and the achievements on the strategic and operational levels.

Sheikha Fatima also met with the directors of the FDF in the central, western and the eastern regions and listened to their briefings on the activities of the Foundation and its effect in family life.
