The price guide can be downloaded from the DTI website and should be displayed at all school supplies stores.

    Volkswagen PH to hold child road safety event in June

    The award-winning Child Safety Initiative (CSI) which focuses on pedestrian safety caters to both younger and older kids through the Junior Driving Course (for children aged 4 to 8 years old) and the new program called Steps to Safety (for kids aged 9 to 12). Representatives of CSI partner Philippine Global Road Safety Partnership (PGRSP) will be conducting the programs.


    The Junior Driving Course lets children drive and navigate a miniature simulated roadway within a community, complete with road signages and stoplights, using Volkswagen push cars. The Steps to Safety program, on the other hand, gives the kids a 15-minute seminar using easy-to-understand modules and easy-to-recall instructions about pedestrian road safety. Then, kids engage in practical application of the module via a virtual reality (VR) game app. The VR game challenges the kids to walk around the road network of a virtual city -- complete with pedestrian signal lights, pedestrian lanes, and footbridges-- to reach seven destinations without getting hit by oncoming vehicles. 


    The CSI campaign has had a total of 7,917 children and 5,955 parents/guardians participating in 37 venues in Luzon and Visayas. Catch the next Steps to Safety event on June 3 and 4 (from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.) at the Activity Center of Alabang Town Center in Muntinlupa City.
