Manulife volunteers enforce safe pedestrian and motorcycle behaviors through a driving simulation

Over 240 primary school students from Hun Sen Krong Primary School were trained in how to handle real-life traffic situations that confront the children everyday on the roads in their communities.This training is a part of the Helmets for Families program, which is sponsored by Manulife Cambodia. Ten volunteers from Manulife Cambodia volunteered to educate the students by riding their two-wheelers through a driving simulation in order to educate the students on how to handle common road safety scenarios. There was also a motorcycle driving simulation that allowed students to experience what it feels like to ride a motorcycle and avoid road hazards and distractions. Students were also provided with road safety information on traffic laws, wearing a helmet, and safe practices as pedestrians, cyclists and when riding a motorcycle. At the end of the training the students participated in a Q&A to test their road safety knowledge.
