14 February 2020, Songkhla Province, Thailand

In order to promote parents’ understanding of road crash risk factors, criteria for safe school zones, and how to be “model parents” and road safety advocates by teaching their children safe road behaviors, AIP Foundation organized a Valentine’s Day workshop for parents of students at Wat Thammakod School, Sathing Mo Sub-district, Singhanakhon District, Songkhla Province.

Parents had the opportunity to learn more about speed limits, rules, and regulations in school zone areas, as well as their duty as parents to play a greater role to ensure their children are safe during their commutes to school by wearing helmets whenever riding on motorcycles. Parents were encouraged to share with one another how they will talk about road safety with their children, creating a culture of collaborative learning and education on road safety in the community.

Representatives from Singhanakhon Police Station andChevron were also in attendance to support and help facilitate the workshop.

The parent workshop was part of the Street Wise program, supported by Chevron Thailand, which encourages awareness-raising in schools and communities to promote safer journeys to school for students in Songkhla Province, Thailand.
