Standing in the pavement or near a traffic light at crossroads like O Cho Dua, Thai Ha- Lang Ha, Khuat Duy Tien, Giai Phong, Le Van Luong, where a lot of vehicles passed by, these young people smiled and put the signs up high for everyone to see.
The phrases read Ha Noi khong voi duoc dau (Do not rush in Hanoi), Di thong tha cho do vat va (Ride slowly to avoid hassle), Dung lan thay that an nhan (Riding in right lane, a leisure), Dung den do chung to thong minh (Stopping at the red light is smart).
Some drivers stopping at the red light turned back to look at the signs and nodded approval.
Khanh Linh, an 11th grader at Nhan Chinh high school, said they wanted to use modern teen language to make catchy phrases so that people can remember easily.
Although the activity took place for only one day, the group expected drivers to remember the message, thus their awareness on traffic safety could be raised.
