Safety is #1–but late arriving

This is something you would never have seen just a few short years ago–a shop selling safety equipment. The foreign donors for projects make the local people paint on the barriers around their projects “Safety is #1,” but people don’t believe that and take almost no precautions that would be considered very normal in most countries. The last statistic I saw reported that only 20% of the motorcycle drivers and passengers wear helmets even though they are required for both.
