AIP Foundation and 15 youth road safety ambassadors from Thuy Loi University in Hanoi joined the Asian Development Bank and Safetipin App on a road safety data collection mission. The mission aimed to collect personal safety data around Hanoi’s Metro Line 3 through Safetipin’s parameters in order to make development recommendations to the government.
Using the app, the road safety ambassadors rated the quality of parameters such as light, security, footpaths, proximity to windows, crowdedness, and gender disparities in order to create a safety score for a specific point on the map.
The mission spanned the week and consisted of manual walking audits, progress updates, and night data collections which involved taking photographs of the road while in a vehicle to later be analyzed and rated for safety.
ADB, Safetipin, AISEC, the Ministry of Transport, and other stakeholders joined at a project progress update meeting to share experiences of the mission and next steps. The data collection will conclude and be synthesized into a report and presentation that will take place in the form of a youth forum in November.
The youth road safety ambassadors are a part of the Safety Delivered program, our program collaboration with The UPS Foundation.
