Did you know that the Legal Development Program (LDP) was established in 2015 with the aim of reducing road injuries and fatalities through legislative improvement? We’re turning three this year and what better way to celebrate this special occasion than spotlighting our hard-working team of road safety experts?
In the coming months, tune in every week to hear LDP members discuss their experiences working in road safety in a new series, “Up close with LDP”. You can watch the entire series here.
In today’s instalment, second-generation LDP member Prof Pol Maj Gen Pongson Kongtreekaew, a professor at the Royal Police Cadet Academy, share his memories of LDP. [English speakers – if you don’t see the captions, check your video settings and make sure “Always show captions” is on.] Also, don’t forget to tune in next week to hear more from Prof Pol Maj Gen Pongson and LDP’s efforts to advocate for lower urban speed limits, which have led to introduction of urban speed limits of no more than 50 km/h in 35 provinces [Data as of July 2018].
The Legal Development Program (LDP) is a collaboration between AIP Foundation Thailand and the World Health Organization (WHO) aiming to reduce road injuries and fatalities through legislative improvement. LDP is supported by the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety (BIGRS).
