An online road safety campaign launched by a UAE student is proving a big hit on Twitter.
The campaign - #DriveSafelyUAE – was started earlier this month by Zayed University student Sara Al Balooshi after she witnessed a car crash on her way to college.
Twitter was buzzing with comments about the campaign on Wednesday.

Another Twitter user, Masand, tweeted: “#DriveSafelyUAE So you can go home and see your loved one rather than not see them at all!”
Other tweets by people included one that said: “#DriveSafelyUae speeding might give u pleasure & fun but don't forget it can cause u your life and others life so don't speed” and another by a user called Linda who said: “saying your kids don't want a carseat is no excuse. My car WILL NOT move unless everyone is safely wearing a seatbelt. #DriveSafelyUAE.”
