Low-and middle-income countries continue to face a growing crisis from road traffic fatalities and
injuries. In ASEAN, motorcycles are involved in a large percentage of collisions that lead to
fatalities and serious injuries. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that over 70% of road
crashes in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and the Philippines involve motorcycles or three-wheelers.
While the use of motorcycles in ASEAN countries is high, compared to automobile vehicles, the
regulatory framework for motorcycle helmet use remains underdeveloped. This has contributed to
substandard regulation and enforcement of quality helmet use and poor public awareness on the
importance of utilizing high-quality helmets.
One distinct characteristic among ASEAN countries is their large proportion of youth (in their late
teens to early 20s) - especially in Vietnam and Cambodia. This demographic is also more likely to
utilize motorcycles as a means of transport due to their relatively inexpensive costs. In Cambodia,
young people make up the largest proportion of age groups involved in road crashes. In Thailand, the
use of motorcycles by drivers younger than the legal driving age is high and the number of crashes
among young people continues to rise.
Increasing quality helmet use is a key road safety priority in these countries because:
- Motorcycles make up a large proportion of personal vehicles and an even larger proportion among
young drivers and low-income road users;
- Quality helmet use reduces the risk of death by 42% and serious head injury by 69%; and Helmet
use is an affordable, high return investment.
Heads Up! is a youth-led campaign that empowers passionate university students to create
innovative, regionally relevant public awareness campaigns for their peers and general road users on
helmet safety in Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Indonesia, India, Chinese - Taipei, Singapore and Australia...
Heads Up! is funded by the Fédération Internationale de lAutomobile (FIA) and implemented by

Foundation has been delivering effective road safety programs in locations across Asia and Africa.
This work has included fostering public-private partnerships with national governments,
international organizations, philanthropic foundations, and multinational corporations to advance
