University students from our Safety Delivered program’s youth ambassador network took to major arterial roads in Phnom Penh in order to spread awareness about distracted driving ahead of the Khmer New Year holiday. H.E. Min Meanvy, General Secretariat of the National Road Safety Committee, also participated in the initiative to show her support.
Statistics indicate that in Cambodia, a high number of road crashes occur around major holidays as many citizens travel across provinces to enjoy time with family and friends at home. During the three days of the campaign, approximately 1,000 road users were educated on the dangerous consequences of mobile phone use while driving, speeding, drunk driving, and not using a helmet. The road safety ambassadors volunteered their time and enthusiasm to ensure these road safety messages were delivered to road users.
