The Motorcycle Development Program Participant Association, Inc. (MDPPA)—the group which composed of local motorcycle manufacturers Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha and Kymco—recently hold its fourth leg road safety seminar at the Lourdes School in Mandaluyong City.
The group reiterates that children are highly vulnerable to the risks and hazards of their road environment. They hope to mitigate these risks by reaching out to children and educating them through road safety seminars in schools. The seminar focuses on teaching third-grade students in helping them be aware of road safety. MDPPA also extend its hope and support that Filipino parents needs to start educating kids at home about road safety.
“MDPPA’s road safety seminar has enriched our students’ understanding of road safety and security. By imparting the value of road safety to our students, MDPPA’s initiative will go a long way toward reducing child road traffic injuries and deaths through children’s improved vigilance and caution,” said Ana Bolinao, Lourdes School of Mandaluyong Principal.
To date, the group has successfully facilitated similar activities in San Beda Alabang, Muntinlupa City in 2014 and 2016 and in FEU Diliman, Quezon City in 2015. The activity is part of MDPPA’s stronger and bolder road safety advocacy typified by road safety seminars for kids and riders and the organization’s on-going “Helmets Save Lives” campaign.
