Over 460 primary school students practiced their road safety knowledge by riding their bicycles through a course simulating real-life traffic situations that confront the children everyday on the road. A motorcycle driving simulator was also present that allowed students to experience what it feels like to ride a motorcycle and avoid road hazards and distractions. The traffic course and motorcycle driving simulator were components of two road safety trainings organized by AIP Foundation and Honda for primary school students in May. AIP Foundation staff, Honda volunteers, and youth road safety ambassadors from Phnom Penh International University and the University of Cambodia provided guidance and corrected mistakes made by the students while on the course. They also provided road safety information on traffic laws, wearing a helmet, and being safe as pedestrians, cyclists and when riding a motorcycle. At the end of the training, the students participated in a Q&A to test their road safety knowledge.
