AIP Foundation’s Thailand Country Manager Oratai Junsuwanaruk made two guest appearances on FM 99.5’s (Traffic Radio for Society) Save & Care program to discuss our recent work on the issues of distracted driving and school bus safety in Thailand.
The interviews focused on the three-month social media campaign we ran earlier this year to educate young people about the risks of distracted driving as part of our Safety Delivered program. In particular, Junsuwanaruk emphasize the dangers of underaged driving of motorcycles and how lack of access to public transportation is a key factor in youth and the broader public’s reliance on motorcycles. One way that AIP Foundation is working to address this issue is through our work to improve school bus safety standards. In coordination with other stakeholders, we will be organizing a seminar on “School Bus Safety Policy and Standards”, which will be held on 21 May, to advocate for the establishment of a school bus safety committee.
