Only walk on the pedestrian lane. Bright means to wear reflective or bright clothes to get the attention of drivers. Yield means drivers must yield to pedestrians. Help means to help elders cross the street. Prize contests will be provided to teach elders to memorize this mnemonic phrase and use it in their daily life. People must require older family members to put on bright clothes or a headlamp when exercising outdoor at night or in the morning. People must also remind them to keep to the side of the road and pay attention to the vehicles. Drivers must abide by traffic laws. They must not run the red light or go over the speed limit. Motorcycle riders must make a hook turn and yield to. pedestrians. Drivers and riders must ensure traffic safety and reduce traffic accidents of elders.

Pingtung Police Station stated that Taiwan has become an aging society. Elders suffer from visual, hearing, gesture and gait impairments. In addition, they’re impacted by chronic disease and reaction of drugs. The public must pay attention to the traffic safety for elders in order to reduce traffic accidents of elders. Road users must pay attention to the road safety for elders.
