JANUARY 2009: Clown
It is sad that more than more than forty thousand fatalities are counted annually in the Brazilian traffic. Some measures have been improved to improve road safety in Brazil, but it’s not sufficient and effective . Alcohol and mobile phone use are still major causes of fatal accidents. Therefore, initiatives at local level emerge to reduce the high number of casualties. When I was in Olinda in January 2009, I noticed this funny clown. He was hired by the city of Olinda to make passersby aware, in a playful way, of their traffic behavior and how to behave properly in traffic.
