The Ministry of Interior has asked motorists to take extra precautions to ensure safety on roads as Qatar is celebrating Garangao.
"The Qatari society celebrates the local fiesta of 'Garangao Night' on 15th Ramadan. Hence please be extra cautious while on roads and take safety measures to avoid traffic accidents. Remember, children will be walking around residential neighbourhoods to collect gifts," the ministry said in a statement yesterday.
Do not rush to reach your destination for Iftar. The brief period before Iftar is considered the most vulnerable time for traffic accidents during Ramadan, so start moving well in advance to avoid rushing.
Don't let children play on internal roads of residential areas, especially at night to ensure their safety from traffic accidents.
Avoid parking vehicles in such a way that may obstruct traffic, especially during prayer timings like Taraweeh or night (Thahajjud) prayers or Iftar gatherings.
Please avoid last day shopping for Eid and finish it early enough to avoid traffic jams and parking at no- parking areas because of huge rush.
