Prime Minister Hun
Sen on Tuesday requested that traffic police continue the enforcement
of a new law requiring motorbike drivers to wear protective helmets.
"When I take the car, I see many motorbike drivers not wearing helmets,
so please continue educating people about wearing helmets in order to
protect their lives," he said during the inauguration of the Hun Sen
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.
