In bid to inculcate road safety tips in young minds, Quezon City government conducted a road safety information drive in two of the city’s day care schools this month.
More than a hundred day care children joined the Department of Public Order and Safety (DPOS) road safety information program dubbed as “Alay ni Bistek Sa Mga Batang Paslit” at Pook Libis Yakap Day Care Center and Pook Daang Tubo Yakap Day Care Center, both in Barangay UP Campus, last November 8 and 10.
The lectures, which were also attended by mothers of day care students, were basically about road signs to familiarize day care children with the different signs posted in major and secondary streets for their safety and protection.
DPOS Chief Elmo San Diego believes that making children aware of different traffic signs they will make it safer for them when they cross the streets near their schools and homes.
“With the road safety program by the city government, we could instill in young minds the importance of traffic signs. That all of the signs they saw outside their houses have corresponding instruction for their safety while in the streets,” San Diego said.
San Diego said that more seminars of road safety program will be conducted in different day care centers in the city to make children aware of their responsibility in observing road safety rules. Maureen Quiñones, PAISO
