The helmet law is estimated to have created a substantial uptick in the number of riders who wear helmets in urban areas, from 30 percent in 2007 to 90 percent today. Teachers and families have been called to provide children with protection skills, including wearing helmets when riding motorbikes.
With the good practice of wearing helmets, Vietnam is now recognized among developing countries for its positive achievements in traffic safety.
The data from the National Traffic Safety Committee shows that 80 percent of road traffic accident deaths are related to motorbikes. Wearing a helmet helps to reduce head injury risk by 60 percent and mortality risk by 40 percent.By Thien Minh
