Global Programme Partner 3M conducted an 3M Asia School Zone Safety Roundtable event in December bringing together industry leaders from governments, institutes, and NGOs to discuss initiatives and plans to save kids lives in the region through improved school zone safety. They presented ideas and solutions to help overcome and change the fact that traffic accidents are one of the highest ranked causes of fatalities for kids worldwide. New technologies for safety assessments based on analytics were shared to help participants design safer road infrastructure for vulnerable road users.
iRAP’s Star Rating for Schools Coordinator Rafaela Machado and Global Innovation Manager and Cities Specialist Monica Olyslagers presented to the 148 delegates.
The event was part of the 3M Transportation Safety Webinar Series which aims to foster a better understanding of the challenges in safe road mobility, and the knowledge to overcome them and save lives.
