What we do
Legislation and Advocacy
Through its committed relationship with the National Traffic Safety Committee (NTSC), AIP Foundation advises on legislative issues and advocates for effective policies on helmet use and traffic safety in Vietnam. We also strongly support increasing enforcement of the compulsory helmet law and have advised the Ministry of Public Security on this important national issue.
AIP Foundation’s policy achievements include:
- Passage in December 2007 of Resolution 32, which instituted a fine for drivers and passengers over the age of 14 using a motorbike without a helmet. After its passage, helmet wearing compliance increased dramatically among adults, from approximately 10% to over 90%.
- Expansion of the mandatory helmet law in May 2010 to include a mandate for children under 14 to wear helmets and the inclusion of a fine for adult drivers transporting helmet-less minors.
- Revision of the adult motorbike helmet standard TCVN 5756-2001 to include a wider variety of helmets more acceptable to the public.
- Development of the region’s first motorbike helmet standard for children: TCVN:6979-2001 (Vietnam is one of only three countries in the world to have a child helmet standard)
