If child road accidents are to be eliminated, opportunities for collective local actions need to be greatly increased. This paper reports on the preparation and development of the first Road Safety project benefiting from a Rotary Global Grant. Data for the exercise was collected in-situ and analyses were carried out to assess the impact of the measures. The study aimed at providing helmets for children in two schools in Bangkok and contributing to reshaping road users’ behaviours. Furthermore, this (mostly) Australasian multi-partner collaboration changed policies at international level which have the potential to improve Road Safety worldwide.
