Holcim Bangladesh and Safe Crossings launch rickshaw visibility program
On March 3rd, Holcim Bangladesh and safe Crossings launched their visibility program for rickshaws. Poor visibility is one of the main causes for rickshaw drivers to get involved in traffic accidents. By placing reflective stickers on rickshaws, they will be visible in the dark and the chance to get involved in a traffic accident is reduced significantly. The project will be piloted in Uttara (Dhaka) and afterwards be rolled out to other areas in Bangladesh.
The launch of the program was covered by different regional and national newspapers.
