Sixty students participated in a capacity-building workshop as part of their new roles as road safety ambassadors for our Safety Delivered program. The students are from two new target universities, the Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and the Ho Chi Minh City University of Agriculture and Forestry, which were recently added to the program in March. At the workshop, the students learned about the dangers of distracted driving, motorcycle safe driving tips, and discussed how to effectively raise awareness about road safety issues among their university peers. Throughout 2018, the newly trained road safety ambassadors will organize six peer-to-peer education activities at each university.

The road safety ambassadors were carefully selected based on their campus involvement and their demonstrated commitment to bringing road safety knowledge to their fellow classmates. During the training, Tuan Vuong Nguyen, a Senior majoring in Real Estate Management at the Ho Chi Minh City University of Agriculture and Forestry, was quoted as saying, “I want to deliver road safety messaging to all of the members of my campus and local community to help reduce road crashes and the devastating damage that they cause.”
