Traffic simulation corners, warning signs, and mobile traffic lights were installed at 23 Walk Wise program schools in the Kaizhou District of China’s Chongqing Province. The equipment will be used to teach students pedestrian safety skills so they can stay safe while walking around their communities. The installations are part of Phase 5 of Walk Wise, which is supported by Chevron.

In China, pedestrians account for 26% of road user deaths. AIP Foundation and Chevron launched Walk Wise in 2012 to combat this statistic. The program implements both school- and community-based projects to teach students and families life-saving pedestrian and road safety lessons.
