The programme aims to raise the awareness and observance of rules on wearing helmets when riding motorbikes and electric bicycles among the public in general and children in particular.
This is the fourth year it has been implemented after the success of three years of implementation from 2018 - 2020.
The activity aims to equip children with knowledge on traffic safety regulations so that they go to school safely.
According to Daiki Mihara, General Director of Honda Vietnam Company, the company has committed to strengthen traffic safety in the country. The helmet regulation is estimated to have created a substantial uptick in the number of riders who wear helmets in urban areas, from 30% in 2007 to 90% today.
Teachers and families have been called on to provide children with protection skills, including wearing helmets when riding motorbikes./.
