Stakeholders gather for the Slow Down to Save Lives workshop.

As part of our Slow Down to Save Lives program, we organized a stakeholders workshop at Yothinburana Primary School to review road crash data collected outside of the school and determine next steps. The participants consisted of school executives and staff, Bang Pho police, and representatives from the Legal Development Program and the Global Health Access Initiative.

At the meeting, the attendees reviewed baseline data, which found that here have been a number of speed-related crashes involving students outside the primary school. The convening was part of the program’s continuing efforts to push for a speed limit reduction of below 50 km/h in front of the school and to urge the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to improve the surrounding street environment. This includes installing necessary traffic and road safety management equipment in order to ensure students and people in the community stay safe.

The program is a collaboration with the Global Road Safety Partnership (GRSP), with the World Health Organization, ThaiRoads, Legal Development Program in Thailand, and other community leaders also acting as key supporters.
