The first teen road safety workshop held at the Phuket Technical College on July 27th was attended by more than a hundred students. Students worked in groups on various fun activities carefully designed to increase their road safety awareness and driving skills. To encourage maximum participation, the workshop was joined by two Thai superstars, Chinawut (Chin) Indracusin and his sister Sophie who came from Bangkok to help promote the campaign.Chin is a talented and well known GMM performing artist in Thailand with 5 albums including “Chin Up”and “Maybe I am Bad”which were on top of the Thai charts for a number of weeks. Sophie, just 17 years old, is an actress currently taking leading roles in 2 television series on channel 7.

At the same time as the workshop some of the student mechanics checked motorcycles for faulty lights and replaced light bulbs for free. Light bulbs were supplied by Phuket Community Foundation and Siam Guardian Services. This has been an ongoing project initiated by the PCF for several years.
