HCMC - Nearly 2,000 parents of students from Phan Dang Luu and Nguyen Luong Bang primary schools in the Central Highlands city of Pleiku joined a school zone safety information session last week.

The event was jointly held by the Department of Education and Training of Pleiku City, the Gia Lai Traffic Safety Committee, and the People’s Police Academy (PPA) as part of the Slow Zone Safe Zone project.

During the information session, the parents learned about the importance of speed reduction when driving around and through school zones.

Experts from the PPA also provided information about what parents should do to enhance child safety in school zones such as slowing down and giving way to pedestrians among other safety guidelines.

At the end of the session, the parents were given fans with school zone safety information on them as practical reminders of the knowledge gained.

Initiated by AIP Foundation, Slow Zone Safe Zone is a two-year road safety program focused on reducing speed in school zones in Pleiku City. The overall purpose of the program is to reduce road crash injuries and fatalities in school zones in the city by improving the road safety environment and culture for students commuting to and from school.

This is done through a comprehensive set of actions to limit speed in school zones, including installing road modifications, holding school zone safety information sessions, conducting a public awareness campaign, developing and piloting a road safety e-curriculum, and supporting local authorities to enforce speed reduction in school zones.
