Campaign to reduce new year fatalities

An NGO plans to distribute 20,000 road safety books in Phnom Penh in a bid to reduce the high number of traffic accidents that typically occur during Khmer New Year. Po Samnang, director of the National Culture and Social Morality Centre, said the books, which will be distributed on April 12 and 13, will be accessible to everyone because they feature illustrations.

“People from the countryside have limited knowledge; they will not understand easily if the book has only text,” he said, adding that an estimated 920,000 people working in Phnom Penh will return to their hometowns for the holiday.
