AIP Foundation visited the Parliament House in Bangkok to submit our proposed school bus safety policy recommendations to Surachai Liangboonlertchai, First Vice President of the National Legislative Assembly. At the same meeting, AIP Foundation Thailand Country Manager Oratai Junsuwanaruk also proposed ways that policymakers can provide support to local administrative organizations to arrange safe school bus services for students. This includes revising existing laws to make providing safe school transport a part of educational provision.
This meeting is part of a larger advocacy campaign to improve students’ safety and access to school buses that is being coordinated by our Legal Development Program. LDP is a collaboration between the AIP Foundation and the World Health Organization aiming to reduce road crash injuries and fatalities through legislative improvement, supported by the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS).
