Engaging extracurricular activities reinforced 600 students’ helmet safety knowledge at Ap Dinh Primary School in Hoc Mon District, one of the six schools involved in Abbott’s Helmets for Families program. Students’ behaviors have shifted during the course of the 2016-2017 program, with the average helmet wearing rates across all four schools in the district reaching 81%, compared to just 31% at baseline. Hoc Mon District is a low-income, agricultural area of Ho Chi Minh City.

AIP Foundation launched a Young Ambassadors for Road Safety (YARS) network that will empower university students to design and implement sustainable road safety awareness activities for more than 3,000 of their peers. During the program’s kick-off ceremony, a helmet design competition was also announced. The capacity building program will work with three universities located in high-risk traffic areas with the aim of increasing awareness of safe driving behaviors and the recent law mandating passenger helmet use. YARS is a partnership with the Australian Direct Aid Program, an office of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Nearly 550 primary school students received quality helmets and were encouraged to wear them as part of their school uniforms during the kick-off ceremony for a new Helmets for Kids program, which is supported by the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB) Group. The road safety initiative aims to make young road users attending Anuk Wat Koruk Kosal Primary School in Siem Reap, role models in their community. The students, along with their teachers, also participated in educational activities during the event.

APM Terminals and AIP Foundation conducted truck driver road safety trainings at Cai Mep International Terminal (CMIT), which is located in the fast-growing market of Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, Vietnam. The terminal neighbors National Highway 51, a notoriously dangerous roadway on which vulnerable users, such as motorcyclists and bicyclists, drive alongside heavy container and truck traffic. This new curriculum aims to make the CMIT-affiliated truck drivers, employees, and the community surrounding the international shipping port safe by promoting strong driving skills and defensive driving techniques.

An organic rice distributor launched a Helmets for Kids program at Thairath Wittaya 5 School that will provide road safety education to more than 10,000 students, teachers, parents, and community members. The Natural Growth Co., Ltd., will also provide 500 quality helmets to beneficiaries. Many of the organic rice distributors’ farmers are members of the Muang Lap Lae Agricultural Cooperation and their children attend Thairath Wittaya 5 School.

Helmets for Families, supported by Abbott, is expanding its road safety education to four new schools in the Hoc Mon District of Ho Chi Minh City, a suburban and agricultural zone where up to 90% of the participating students’ parents are manual laborers. This year, Helmets for Families will continue its work toward increasing road safety literacy and safe behaviors amongst Vietnamese families by distributing more than 4,700 high quality helmets to students and teachers, and exchanging nearly 900 subsidized helmets to parents in Hoc Mon District and at two schools in Hanoi.

APM Terminals together with AIP Foundation, a road safety nonprofit, is rolling out a new training program in Vietnam to help make the port community of Cai Mep in southern Vietnam safe. More than 45 truck drivers and other CMIT employees, along with executives from the APM Terminals’ operated Cai Mep International Terminal (CMIT), joined 500 students, teachers, and parents at Tran Quoc Toan Primary School, which neighbors the port, to address road safety issues in their community. The truck drivers work for CMIT, a subsidiary of the Netherlands-based port operator APM Terminals. The event is the inaugural activity for Lifting Safety, a proactive road safety program developed by AIP Foundation and APM Terminals. It will provide nearly 1,000 helmets and road safety education classes to children at Tran Quoc Toan and Toc Tien primary schools.

At an annual awards ceremony, H.R.H. Prince Michael of Kent honored Cambodia’s National Road Safety Committee (NRSC) for its robust enforcement of the country’s new road traffic law, including the mandatory use of motorcycle helmets for passengers, which has saved lives and prevented serious injuries. Two hundred and fifty-nine fewer road crash-related deaths and 596 fewer injuries occurred in the first 11 months of 2016 compared to the same period of time in 2015.

Helmets for Families today expanded its road safety education efforts to Kessararam Primary School in Siem Reap City and donated more than 900 helmets to the school community.

AIP Foundation, in collaboration with FIA Foundation and with support from the Ministry of Education of Cambodia, is organizing a workshop in order to review and preliminarily approve a draft Action Plan to promote helmet use among students and educators in Cambodia. The plan would propose helmets be made part of school uniforms in the country as well as include provisions aimed at developing teachers’ capacity to convey material on road and helmet safety.

AIP Foundation, with support from FIA Foundation, is introducing the Journalist Awards for Excellence in Road Safety Media in Cambodia. This distinction serves to highlight significant contributions to the dissemination of accurate and engaging news pieces focused on the importance of motorcycle passenger helmet law enforcement.

After years of concerted efforts, January 2016 saw the start of enforcement for the new Road Traffic Law in Cambodia. The law has already resulted in helmet use rates among motorcycle passengers reaching a record level of 29.9% in target areas where AIP Foundation implements its projects. This success goes hand in hand, however, with the fact that rates remain at a low 15% during the critical period of the night when most road crashes typically occur. This is coupled with the fact that the deployment of traffic police is not yet as robust as was initially envisioned. If stronger enforcement came into the equation, it is likely that rates could climb much higher and reach universal status.

A group of thirty media representatives recently joined AIP Foundation and members of the traffic, provincial, and district police to survey the current state of Cambodia’s roads, four months after the Road Traffic Law instituting a mandatory helmet policy for motorcycle passengers went into effect. The tour is part of the Safe Roads. Safe Communities. program funded by The UPS Foundation and integrated into the larger Head Safe. Helmet On. program funded by USAID’s Development Innovation Ventures.

AIP Foundation, in partnership with The UPS Foundation, is pleased to announce the launch of www.saferoads.org.kh. This educational web portal will be focused on ensuring that the Cambodian public, especially the younger generation, has access to accurate, detailed, and engaging information on road safety issues. The broader aim of the launch is to encourage an increase in helmet use among the many motorcycle passengers, including children, in the country.

Throughout the months of April and May, AIP Foundation, in partnership with The UPS Foundation and in collaboration with the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC), will be hosting a national social media campaign.
