Perodua has launched a five-year-long nationwide road safety campaign aimed at improving the behaviour of Malaysian drivers.
The programme’s initial focus is to promote four good driving habits - wearing of seat belts, non-usage of mobile devices while driving, the usage of turn signals and the usage of child seats.
In line with the campaign launch, Perodua is offering the Gear Up child seats for customers at introductory offer prices from now until Chinese New Year 2018:
- Infant Seat: RM660 (Normal price – RM790)
- Toddler Seat: RM780 (Normal price – RM980)
While the Infant Seat is designed for infants weighing up to 13 kg and is available in red or grey colours, the toddler seat is for children weighing 9-36 kg, and is offered in red or black. Both seats come with ISOFIX and can be easily fixed in any Perodua model (2012 onwards).
“In addition to selling these child seats to our customers, our authorised sales and service advisors will also demonstrate how to install them properly for your peace of mind,” said Datuk Dr Aminar Rashid Salleh, President and CEO of Perodua.
And then, there is the Tweckbot social media-based safety campaign. Offering a free 50-point vehicle inspection for all Perodua vehicles every festive period, Tweckbot has inspected around 5,000 vehicles since its inception, representing Perodua’s efforts to ensure the safety and roadworthiness of its vehicles.
As part of this 5-year Road Safety Programme, Perodua will be working with various government agencies such as Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan Raya (JPJ), Jabatan Keselamatan Jalan Raya (JKJR) and the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) to make the roads safer.
“We are firm supporters of the government’s efforts in enhancing road safety and want to play our part.” Aminar said.
