For those of us living in Vietnam, we surely all agree that traffic and road accidents do seem to be the biggest threat in Vietnam. Road and traffic awareness is really something that doesn’t seem to be present in the minds of the huge majority of people sharing the Vietnamese roads with us.
Well, it seems our friends over at Créa TV are taking some very welcome and surely life-saving steps towards helping improve awareness and education related to traffic.
Here is a presentation of their road safety campaign, hope we can all support it as best as possible.
