Prime Minister Hun

Sen on Tuesday requested that traffic police continue the enforcement

"When I take the car, I see many motorbike drivers not wearing helmets,

Quay in Preah Sihanouk province. In 2008, 149 motorbike drivers and 79

passengers died on Cambodia's roads while not wearing helmets,

according to Handicap International Belgium.
