10, 17, and 31 July — Kandal and Kompong Speu provinces, Cambodia
In an effort to increase road safety awareness before the beginning of summer vacation, 500 students from continuing target schools at Hun Sen Preak Russey, Korki, and Vorsar Primary Schools in Kandal and Kompong Speu provinces participated in organized road safety activities sponsored by The UPS Foundation this month.
Students were informed on the fundamentals of road safety, including traffic law adherence and correct helmet use, through different extracurricular activities. Students enjoyed educational games such as pedestrian lessons, bicyclist safety training, road safety ping-pong, slow racing bicycle rides, along with question and answer activities to emphasize the importance of helmet use.
These educational methods reinforce safe road behaviors prior to the start of summer vacation, when students spend more time outside and are more at risk of injuries from road crashes.
