HÀ NỘI — A ceremony to sign the cooperation programme between the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC) and the Vietnam Association of Motorcycle Manufacturers (VAMM) on traffic safety 2018 and announce research results on traffic safety in 2017 was held in Hà Nội on Thursday.

This is an annual activity co-organised by VAMM and NTSC within the framework of the Fund for Research on Traffic Safety for Motorcycles in Vietnam established by VAMM in 2015.

"I am delighted that this is the fourth consecutive year that NTSC and VAMM have co-operated to implement a traffic safety campaign, safety riding instructions and research on traffic safety nationwide, which actively contributes to solving the problems of traffic safety in Việt Nam,” says Khuất Việt Hùng, the Executive Chairman of NTSC.

Particularly, the practical results and recommendations from the five studies sponsored by Fund for Research on Traffic Safety for Motorcycles in Việt Nam are valuable references for the NTSC and other relevant agencies to work out effective measures and policies to improve traffic safety throughout the country,” he added.

Over the past four years, more than 13 million people have been trained and nearly 250,000 standard helmets have been donated by VAMM.

Also on the same day, VAMM officially launched a new traffic safety project for 2018, “Traffic Safety Short Film Contest – I know, I change”, which will record and honour civilised behaviours in traffic through the lens of young people, contributing to developing a better traffic environment. Entries could be sent to email: toibiet.toithaydoi@gmail.com or through the fan page of the contest https://www.facebook.com/toibiet.toithaydoi/ from October 1 to November 4. The winners will be announced on November 22. — VNS
