This is fierce. And powerful. You do not need much imagination to get the chills.

“If you won’t put a helmet on your child, you’d better plan ahead.”
AIP Foundation is partnering with Vietnamese road safety stakeholders to design and implement a 3-year public awareness campaign in 2011 targeting child helmet use. Children comprise 40% of traffic fatalities and often do not wear helmets due to widespread misinformation about the medical safety of helmets for children. Although the government issued Decree 34 in May 2010 – requiring children over the age of 6 to wear helmets – only 30% of Vietnamese children wear helmets.
Below some previous campaigns from the AIP Foundation.
I’m a scooter driver myself and had an accident last autumn. I was lucky because I always wear a helmet but also protective clothing.
