Putrajaya Road Safety Programme

Smart De CARE

         -  Introduction

       ‘Smart DeCARE’ is a traffic circuit road safety competition/education programme introduced in Putrajaya in June 2009. Based on the traffic check conducted by JPJ and Shell Traffic Competition Programme, the module introduced is to educate and for students to learn which emphasises on the methods and procedures to be smart drivers through learning of prudent driving with a number of approaches such as courses/workshops/trainings/competitions. Since the 2009 and 2010 programmes were conducted at a temporary circuit at the car park next to Alamanda Complex, for 2010, Perbadanan Putrajaya approved the construction of the DeCARE traffic circuit in Precinct 7. Today, the circuit is still under construction and due for completion at the end of 2011 and operational in 2012.

After a few years of its introduction, ‘Smart DeCARE’ now provides four (4) of its own module based on the participant’s category, in order for the road safety knowledge to be learned and practiced by all road users.


The Smart DeCARE programme aims to educate and for students to learn on road safety in a way that would attract the Putrajaya community to participate.
