ARSC conference 2017

This abstract explores the impact of introducing comprehensive motorcycle and pedestrian safety programming in a region affected by industrial activities. The program has focused efforts in Songkhla Province, an area hosting substantial oil and gas operations. With support from Chevron Corporation, AIP Foundation developed and implemented Street Wise, a program that introduced a multi-faceted, grassroots campaign to provide road safety education, mobilize community participation in road safety activities, and raise awareness about key road risks and methods for staying safe. The combined efforts have resulted in improved road safety behaviors and knowledge across various indicators.
