On December 14th and 22nd, nearly 4,500 parents and students from the Binh Tan and Tan Phu districts of Ho Chi Minh City joined “Kids love helmets” family days organized by the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Education and Training, the Traffic Safety Committee, and the Asia Injury Prevention (AIP) Foundation. Family days are being organized in Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, and Da Nang as part of the activities of the “Children also need a helmet” public awareness campaign.

“Kids love helmets” family days give students and parents the chance to have fun while learning about traffic safety and the importance of helmets through activities like slow cycling, puzzles, helmet decorating, and flash mob dances. In addition to the family day, parents and students of Tan Phu district received hand fans and helmet coupons, and will be entered in lucky draws and invited to attend information sessions conducted by traffic police on the importance of helmet use for children.
