To celebrate the final day of the 24th Annual Singhanakhon Games, Street Wise participated in a community parade attended by over 3,000 people. Students, wearing helmets and carrying banners, walked in the parade on behalf of Street Wise to advocate for helmet safety. The audience consisted of students, teachers, parents, and local organizations from six school districts in the Singhanakhon District of Songkhla Province.
Earlier in the week, Mr. Khomsan Oynasuan, Specialist, Community Engagement of Chevron Thailand, and representatives from AIP Foundation handed over the Street Wise program’s road simulation guide and equipment to Superintendent Teerasak Jaroensri of the Singhanakhon Police. Traffic Police in the Singhanakhon District of Songkhla Province will incorporate the road simulation into the trainings and workshops they lead for Street Wise.
Street Wise is supported by Chevron Thailand and has been implemented in Songkhla Province since 2014. Thailand has the second-highest road crash fatality rate in the world. Street Wise provides school-based education and awareness tools to make the country’s roads safer.
