The Walk Wise team worked with Kai County Youth League Volunteers to conduct an investigation of helmet use among motorbike drivers. To calculate the baseline situation of helmet use of motorbike drivers in Kai County, the AIP Foundation China team worked with the local Youth League to recruit 10 volunteers to conduct the survey. This survey aims to get information about motorbike drivers such as when they began driving motorbikes, how often they wear a helmet, the reason for why they do or do not wear a helmet, and the quality of the helmet they use.
Motorbike drivers were actively responding during the activity and each motorbike driver that participated received a voucher with which he or she could get a free helmet on National Road Safety Day on 2 December, 2015.
Through the investigation, basic information on helmet use in Kai County was obtained; this information will be used to guide the next helmet intervention programs.
