Road safety drawing con­test win­ners an­nounced: DOT

The China Post - - LOCAL -

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.
