AIP Foundation facilitated road safety youth discussions with nearly 200 students at Build Bright University and Asia Euro University in Phnom Penh. University students had the opportunity to speak up and raise their concerns in accordance with this year’s UN Global Road Safety Week theme of leadership for road safety.

Students shared ideas with a group of guest speakers including Mr. Sen Cheatvisoth, Deputy Director of Road Safety Department of the Ministry of Public Work and Transportation; General Long Thou, Deputy Director of Traffic Police and Public Order Department of the General Commissariat of National Police; and Mr. Kim Pagna, AIP Foundation Cambodia Country Director.

During the discussion, students raised many concerns about the dangerous roads near their universities and shared many practical suggestions on how universities and students could make roads safer. A majority of students suggested creating speed limits of 30 Km/h around universities and schools zone. Asia Euro University is a partner university as part of our Safety Delivered program, supported by The UPS Foundation.
