Honda Vietnam to present 20,000 helmets to people nationwide

VOV.VN - Honda Vietnam Company has worked alongside the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC) to launch its annual motorcycle helmet programme by donating nearly 20,000 pieces to students and people across the country.

The programme aims to raise public awareness of the mandatory use of helmets in line with traffic laws in a bid to reduce deadly traffic accidents.

Honda Vietnam first developed its annual motorcycle helmet programme in 2015, and a total of 150,000 helmets have been provided free of charge for residents across the country over the past years.

Along with offering local people helmets, other activities have also been held to promote traffic safety and raise public awareness, especially among students, about the need to comply with helmet regulations. Indeed, this push will be rolled out with the assistance of Honda Vietnam across provinces throughout the country.

According to the NTSC’s data, 80% of deaths in road traffic accidents are related to motorbikes. As such, wearing a helmet helps to reduce the risk of head injury by 60% and the risk of mortality by 40%.
