Road safety

An article I saw earlier from the InterAksyon website was about road accidents. The article reports that an average 7 kids in the Philippines die every day because of road accidents. These road accidents are mostly caused by bicycles, motorcycles, pedicabs and public vehicles.

It was also in this article that a data from the Safe Kids Philippines that

“only one out of every four children has knowledge on road safety”

If basic education has the 3 R’s (Reading, ‘Riting and ‘Rithmetic) of learning, road safety has 3 E’s (Education, Enforcement and Engineering). These are essential so when these children grow up, they won’t be road and traffic safety violators.

    Nice read. I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. He just bought me lunch because I found it for him! Therefore let me rephrase: Thanks for lunch!

    Hiya, I am really glad I have found this information. Nowadays bloggers publish just about gossips and web and this is really irritating. A good web site with interesting content, this is what I need. Thanks for keeping this website, I’ll be visiting it. Do you do newsletters? Can not find it.
