Khmer language road safety / helmet safety info

Post by rozzieoz » Thu Oct 27, 2016 8:52 pm

Is there a website or pamphlet available with some safety information, mainly about helmet use.

I am struggling to explain this to a Khmer person - they just can't seem to understand why they need to wear a helmet.

She looks at gruesome images on Facebook every day but she can't seem to make the connection between splattered brain and lack of helmet.

I had this silly idea about making a tv commercial called 'Heads Don't Bounce'.
Never tried this, but the idea was to drop a watermelon from a balcony onto the concrete below, then strap a watermelon into a helmet and do the same. (This assumes that the helmet can survive the drop keeping the watermelon in tact).

Oh hell yeah!!! I will be behind you all the way - I've visualised some sort of community service advert on tv. This is something I can get fully support.

What do we need to do?

There would be many ways to illustrate the point but that's a good one

There could be numerous variations of a 15 - 20 second ad.

I don't think you need to worry about her splattering her brain, as it is obvious that she doesn't have one !!!

She does through, she's not a stupid girl, that's why it's frustrating.

Lots of stuff available, heres one from last year:

Cambodia’s recently approved traffic safety law is being supported by a new TV and street enforcement campaign co-funded by USAID and the FIA Foundation.https://www.fiafoundation.org/blog/2015 ... a-campaign
