NLEX Supports 6th UN Road Safety Week

by Alex Sevilla

NLEX Corporation joined the celebration of the  6th UN Global Road Safety Week, with the theme ”Streets for Life #Love30”, on May 17-23, 2021.

Spearheaded by the NLEX ISO 39K Team, the program jumpstarted with the campaign from our leaders on the significance of road safety.

Toll Service Facilities along NLEX and SCTEX showcased booths that were designed based on road safety themes (speed limits, importance of rest, seat belt use, BLOWBAGETS, and more) from May 17-20, 2021. The Lakeshore TSF, Inc. was announced as the champion for the best TSF Road Safety Booth Contest.

With the slogan “Streets for Life,” this year’s UN Road Safety Week campaigns for a lower street speed (30km/hr). This aims for safer coexistence of people and traffic in the streets. Seminars and games were organized for NLEX employees to inform and communicate the impact of road safety even for non-motorized and vulnerable road users. The following were the webinars conducted:

  1. Safe System Approach Webinar by Atty. Daphne Marcelo ( May 18, 2021)
  2. Road Safety for Non-Motorized Mobility: A Bicycle Advocacy Primer Webinar by Mia Bunao (May 19, 2021)
  3. Safe Road for Vulnerable Road Users’ Webinar by Robert Siy Jr. (May 20, 2021)

To cap the celebration, employees who actively participated all throughout the campaign were given appreciation tokens and gifts.
