INN reported on an international initiative by US conglomerate 3M to improve road safety for schoolchildren.

 

The leading cause of death of the over 5s in the world is accidents on the road, according to data.

 

So 3M are joining forces with local authorities to do something about it by improving crossings, signage and road markings. 

 

And Thailand - where road accidents were named #1 by the World Health Organization in 2018 - has not been left out.

Understanding English might help in this case.

The schools in our area have school kids controlling the traffic to allow students to cross the road. Police too busy sitting in the gold shops playing with their phones. Do the gold shop owners pay for this service ?
