A primate rides a bike to promote road safety

Bam has become a celebrity in Thailand. This primate was given a task by the government to promote road safety. Its mission. Encourage young cyclists with best fixed gear bicycles to wear helmets. Monkey, who resides in Bangkok zoo can now come out of his enclosure and wander the aisles of the area on his bicycle with his peers, to the amusement of visitors. Monkey gets on his bike when he gets the chance and can spend hours riding in the zoo, without tiring. With Bam, Thai authorities hope to reduce the number of road accidents involving bicycles, accidents which are always more numerous in the country. (Mlb)
