In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distance, the ATRANS Social Media Project was established in 2021 to communicate, educate, and create knowledge for young people about road safety for both drivers and pedestrians by using social media platforms such as TikTok, Youtube, Facebook, Clubhouse, or Twitter to gather information on how to drive or walk for each individual to be safe for themselves and the public, and research driving behavior on the road. The first phase was led by Asst. Prof. Dr. Varameth Vichiensan, and the initiative received positive feedback. Asst. Prof. Dr. Nuwong Chollacoop was the project leader for Phase Two.
