Thirty Safety Delivered road safety ambassadors from the Economic University of Ho Chi Minh City took advantage of the highly anticipated AFC U-23 Championship soccer match to educate an estimated 2,500 of their peers with a distracted driving video. The video, which was shown to the audience during the match’s half time, was originally published by Volkswagen and focused on the dangers of mobile phone use while driving. It emphasized that it only takes a moment of distraction for tragedy to strike. The championship match was a face-off between Vietnam and Uzbekistan’s national teams, with Vietnam making history in the tournament when it became the first Southeast Asian country to move out of the group stages. On the same day, 30 road safety ambassadors at Hong Bang University also provided safe driving knowledge and skills education for 300 of their fellow students.

These were the first peer-to-peer education activities carried out by the road safety ambassadors in 2018, with 70 more events across 10 program schools planned for the upcoming year.
