Road safety drawing contest winners announced: DOT
Launched last year, winners of the road safety drawing contest have been announced.
The Taipei City Government Department of Transportation (DOT) launched a drawing contest last year in order to arouse awareness of road safety from the public. 446 pieces of work enrolled for the contest, most of which were high school and university students.
Three themes were set for the contest: the first is to warn motorcyclers not to ride overspeed, the second is to advice elders only to cross the roads when it is green light for pedestrians, and the last is to promote that bikers should get off and walk at crowded areas.
Students f rom National Taiwan University took home the first price for the first two themes, while a student from Fu Jen Catholic University took home the first price for the last. Each will be taking home a NT$50,000 award.
According to DOT, the goal for this contest is to enhance people’s awareness for road safety with these impressive and creative winning works.
