Project TOGETHER spreads road safety messages to senior citizens

Traffic Matters

The Force has launched Project TOGETHER earlier to promote road safety among the elderly and encourage all members of the community to look out for others. For the phase two of the project, officers of Regional Road Safety Offices distributed publicity materials to senior citizens in parks, restaurants and recycling shops near traffic accidents black spots between mid-June and early July. The officers reminded the elderly of the traffic accident black spots near their home and advised them to take precautionary measures to avoid vehicle blind spots. Promotional leaflets, folding umbrellas, umbrella covers, hand sanitisers and bagged rice were distributed to the elderly during the publicity campaign.
