In mid-March, members of the traffic police in Binh Duong Province gathered to participate in a capacity-building training focused on increasing the enforcement of child helmet use. In attendance were 30 members of the provincial traffic police as well as the Vice Chief of the Binh Duong Traffic Police Department and the Vice Director of the Binh Duong Department of Transportation.
This training is one of six recent police workshops supported by FIA Foundation; the previous five were conducted in November and December of 2015 and involved 180 participants. Enforcement makes up a key component of the National Child Helmet Action Plan, launched in 2015 by Vietnam’s National Traffic Safety Committee with technical support from AIP Foundation.
