Nearly 2,000 drawings portraying day-to-day traffic situations from a child’s perspective were submitted to a children’s art competition run by the National Committee for Traffic Safety from June 22 to August 30.

An award ceremony was held in Hanoi on October 8, with 20 first prizes, 30 second prizes, 80 third prizes and five team prizes.

The artwork features children’s good deeds in traffic situations, such as helping the elderly across the road, cycling in the correct lane, and stopping at red lights. The drawings also showed common traffic problems, such as congested roads, traffic jams and road accidents.

The competition is part of an ongoing traffic culture project to raise awareness on traffic regulations and road safety.

Ministries and sectors nationwide have been called for stricter control of transport activities in a bid to bring the number of fatalities from traffic accidents in 2014 to below 9,000.-VNA
