Road safety needs attention

Editors:

In large cities like Phnom Penh and other provincial towns the amount of traffic

has increased drastically. The motor bike and bicycle riders don't care about traffic

rules either. Moreover, the motor-bike riders in Cambodia do not use helmets. Most

of the bicycles do not have any brakes, which cause serious accidents in the cities

and other parts of the country as well.

It would be a very helpful to organize "Traffic Week" at least once in

a month so that people can be taught about traffic rules, the importance of using

helmets and having proper brakes, etc. UNTAC can play a vital role in making it a

success.
