Southern youngsters respond to call for traffic safety

HCM City, September 29 (VNA) – More than 2,000 young people in Ho Chi Minh City took part in a traffic safety-themed festival at the Youth Cultural House on September 28.

The festival’s highlight was a forum during which participants discussed appropriate behaviours on the road, how to respond to accidents, and measures to improve public awareness of commuting safely and the Law on Road Traffic.

A photo exhibition, physical games and plays were held to convey traffic safety information to the youth who also engaged in activities sharpening their skills of riding motorcycles.

Organisers also presented quality helmets to 150 motorbike taxi drivers and members of volunteer teams to ensure local traffic safety.

On this occasion, the organising board launched a traffic safety week calling on the young to commute by buses and wear standard helmets.

As part of the festival, 60 police officers and 100 young people proceeded on their bicycles and motorbikes through HCM City’s main streets to deliver traffic safety messages to local dwellers.
