Participants learned techniques for how to better advocate for policy and legislative changes to improve road safety in Thailand. They then worked in small groups on an exercise to develop campaigns to lower the speed limits in Bangkok, establish stricter public transportation safety standards, curb drunk driving, and promote helmet wearing in Ubon Ratchathani Province. Miranda Hysell and Aaron Schwid, from the Global Road Safety Program, led the sessions.
The LDP, which is led globally by the World Health Organization and the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety, aims to build the capacities of legal, civil society, and media professionals to strengthen road safety legislation and enforcement. AIP Foundation coordinates LDP activities in Thailand.
