VOICE FROM TRAINEES
"Through the event, I had a detailed understanding of the causes, characteristics, and serious consequences of road traffic accidents, and let us deeply understand the cruel facts of, so-called, 'car accidents are more fierce than tigers'."
"Safety laws and regulations are very important. If you travel in a civilized manner, a slight slack will lead to bad results."
"As a novice driver who has just obtained a driver’s license, the content of these defensive driving is delivered in a timely manner, which makes me more confident to drive on the road!"
about "UPS Road Code™"
Our country has the world's second-largest population of motor vehicle ownership. Due to the rapid rise of economic construction, the number of private cars in China has also increased significantly in the short term, and the gap in traffic safety education as an aside effect of the rapid development of private car culture has become increasingly obvious.
In order to fill the gap in education in this area, the UPS Road Code™ road safety code project was introduced into China to provide assistance to young drivers. Since 2013, HoS worked with UPS to carry out road safety courses and defensive driving skill teaching in local communities.
This project continues to provide local youth groups with continuous road safety knowledge transmission and is committed to letting young new drivers know the various road threats they face when driving and developing good driving habits to improve safe driving awareness. We aim to create a safe driving environment and road environment for everyone together.
We are seeking more uni. student teams and communities who are interested in this project. Welcome to contact us for communication: firstname.lastname@example.org
