It is clear that more than any other individuals, children are most vulnerable to road crashes for various reasons.
 
To spur the road safety among Filipino civilians this year, Motorcycle Development Program Participant Association, Inc. (MDPPA) reached out to children, particularly grade schoolers, due to their risks on road accidents. The organization also appealed to their parents to educate their kids about road safety on their respective homes.
