AIP Foundation and 15 youth road safety ambassadors from Thuy Loi University in Hanoi joined the Asian Development Bank (ADB) on a road safety data collection mission. The mission aimed to gather personal safety data around Hanoi’s Metro Line 3 in order to make development recommendations to the government. Using the Safetipin App, the road safety ambassadors rated the quality of parameters such as light, security, footpaths, proximity to windows, crowdedness, and gender disparities in order to create a safety score for a specific point on the map.
The mission spanned the week and consisted of manual walking audits, progress updates, and night data collections, which involved taking photographs of the road while in a vehicle to later be analyzed and rated for safety. We joined ADB, Safetipin, AIESEC, the Ministry of Transport, and other stakeholders at a project progress update meeting to share experiences of the mission and next steps. The data collection will conclude and be synthesized into a report and presentation that will take place in the form of a youth forum in November.
The youth road safety ambassadors are a part of the Safety Delivered program, our program collaboration with The UPS Foundation.
