SANTA CRUZ, Marinduque — Nearly 800 boy scouts, senior scouts, rover scouts and scouters developed a sense of awareness through the successful road safety seminar conducted by the Land Transportation Office (LTO)-Boac recently at Matalaba Elementary School.
The lectures were conducted as part of the 2023 Council Wide Advancement Camp and First Council Rover Moot organized by the Boy Scouts of the Philippines (BSP) to cultivate a sense of responsibility among the participants, contributing to the overall promotion of safer road practices.
Under the leadership of Department of Transportation (DOTr) secretary Jaime Bautista and LTO chief Vigor Mendoza II, the initiative highlighted the commitment of both agencies to proactively engage with the community, starting with the younger generation.
By targeting scout gathering, the authorities aim to instill a culture of road safety from an early age, fostering habits that will contribute to a safer and more responsible road environment.
Through interactive lectures and discussions, the scouts were educated on various aspects of road safety, including traffic rules and regulation, pedestrian safety and the importance of responsible driving. The emphasis was not only on theoretical knowledge but also on practical application, encouraging the scouts to become ambassadors of safe road behavior within their communities.
Hence, the road safety lectures conducted by LTO-Boac in collaboration with the BSP-Marinduque Council represent a commendable effort to empower the next generation with the knowledge and values necessary for responsible road use. — Marinduquenews.com
