From the 24th to the 28th of August 2015, five schools in the Signhanakhon District in Songkhla Province participated in Street Wise activities. Sponsored by Chevron Thailand Exploration & Production, Ltd., the project aims to improve road safety awareness and behaviors of the Signhanakhon and Muang Districts. According to baseline research, only 3% of children in the Signhanakhon District wear helmets.
The activities held at the five schools include lessons on how to wear a helmet properly and how to practice safe pedestrian behavior. Other components of the extracurricular activities included sessions on road safety regulations and laws, led by Educational Officers from the Department of Land Transport, Songkhla Province and bicycle safety activities such as road traffic simulations led by Phithan Panit Company Ltd. and Honda Ariya Motor Co., Ltd.
AIP Foundation is dedicated to equipping children to be safe on the roads. With the activities conducted through the Street Wise project, Thailand is making progress towards developing a generation of safe road users.
