Transmac – Transportes Urbanos de Macau S.A.R.L. organized three driver safety seminars on the 15th, 16th and 17th of this month, to strengthen the safety awareness of bus captains and to enhance their crisis management skills when encountering traffic accidents. The Company invited officer Lee Man Ning from the Traffic Department of the Public Security Police Force as the main speaker. More than 100 Transmac bus captains joined the seminars.
During the seminars, officer Lee reminded the participants of the dense population of Macau, the narrowness of the roads, the drastic increase in the number of automobiles in the city, the constant traffic congestion and the frequent roadside constructions. He analyzed the causes of traffic accidents, using real cases and sharing his own experiences. He also gave the bus captains a detailed explanation and analysis of the traffic regulations in Macau.
The seminars also included question and answer sessions that gave bus captains the chance to ask questions about the issues they encountered on the road. This allowed them to better absorb the knowledge presented in the seminars.
Given the worsening local traffic conditions, traffic accidents that involve large vehicles are not uncommon. As a public transportation service provider, Transmac puts a high emphasis on transportation safety. The Company is committed to enhancing the skills of its employees through arranging various kinds of training sessions in order to provide residents with safer and higher quality public transportation services.
