The jointly-organized campaign will be held from 5th June to 5th July, and during that month will set out to, first of all, educate the public on tyre maintenance, and secondly, to provide an easy means to fit their cars with new tyres to ensure a safe “balik kampung” journey this festive season.
Officiating the campaign launch was Mr. Cameron Wilson, Vice President of Marketing & Sales PLT &TT Malaysia, Continental Tyre PJ Malaysia Sdn Bhd along with Tuan Haji Jasmi bin Yusoff, Director of Policy and Innovation Division, Road Safety Department (JKJR) and Badrul H Mahmud, Head of Retail Marketing for Shell Malaysia Trading Sdn Bhd.
“We believe that by conducting the Hari Raya Tyre Safety Check Campaign, it will assist the government in promoting awareness of road safety and will reduce road accidents during the festive season,” said Mr. Wilson during his speech.
He added, “Correct tyre inflation pressure and sufficient tread depth are essential to ensure safe motoring. Without these measures, emergency stopping distances can be much longer which means more accidents at higher impact speeds. So clearly, correct tyre inflation, sufficient tread depth as well as choosing quality tyres such as Continental’s can make the difference between life and death.”
There will be tyre safety checks and tyre care demonstrations conducted at 21 Shell petrol stations throughout the country. Participants will receive a booklet of tyre maintenance tips, Continental premiums, and a RM50 voucher for purchase of Continental tyres.
