Ha Nam (VNA) – A traffic safety campaign was launched in the northern province of Ha Nam on March 9, targeting better safety awareness of students when joining the traffic.

Jointly implemented by the provincial Traffic Safety Committee and the Japanese Honda Vietnam company, the campaign encourages the teaching of traffic safety in schools, while strengthening communications on traffic safety among workers in industrial parks.

At the launching ceremony, Honda Vietnam presented 1,000 helmets to the Ha Nam Traffic Safety Committee. Following the ceremony, local youngsters paraded major streets of Phu Ly city.
