Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper, in collaboration with relevant departments in Ho Chi Minh City, on Saturday launched a propram to raise awareness of road safety and spread the message of traveling with responsibility.

The campaign - “Chuyen xe van minh,” literally translated as “Civilized trip” - is aimed at building a traffic safety culture in order to mitigate accident risks and ensure safety for road users, the organizers said at the launching ceremony at the Youth Culture House in the southern metropolis’ District 1.

The campaign encourages people to share stories of meaningful actions and behaviors they witness while traveling on the streets, as a way of spreading positive messages. Every entry selected for publication will add VND15,000 ($0.6) to a fund that will be used to gift quality helmets for children.

Increasing awareness of traffic safety through its editorial content has always been one of the top priorities of Tuoi Tre, hence the idea of launching this campaign, the daily’s editor-in-chief Le The Chu said at the launch ceremony.

Khuat Viet Hung, executive vice chairman of Vietnam’s National Traffic Safety Committee, spoke highly of the newspaper’s initiative, as well as the active participation in the campaign by the municipal authorities, transport enterprises, and local residents.

According to Hung, a traffic safety culture is not only about road users complying with traffic regulations but also law enforcement fulfilling their assigned tasks in a transparent manner.

Lacking a traffic culture is one of the main causes of the large number of traffic accidents in Vietnam, he underlined.
