With the slogan, "A fast hug won't do ... slow down" the Kunhadi Association has chosen Valentine's Day to launch a road safety awareness campaign, encouraging Lebanese youth to drive safely when out on the town.Fady Gebrane, President of Kunhadi, explained the idea behind the initiative.The new initiative will tie the leisurely pleasures of Valentine's Day to slower, safer, driving. In support of the campaign, Kunhadi is also promoting a "Longest Hug" contest from Feb. 11-15 . The five best hugs will be awarded with surprise gifts.Kunhadi ambassador Ines Abou Ayach challenged the Lebanese to drive slower and hug longer, and believes the hugging world record is in reach. Gebrane hopes that a recently passed traffic law, which punishes violators, will help lower the number of accidents.
