HYUNDAI EMBARKS ON ROAD SAFETY AWARENESS CAMPAIGN

Free 12-point Inspection For All Cars to Raise Road Safety Awareness
2016-06-03

SHAH ALAM, 3rd June 2016 – In conjunction with the ‘balik kampung’ season this Hari Raya, Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) is organising its first road safety awareness campaign offering free 12-point inspection for all cars regardless of brands at selected Shell petrol stations from 29 May to 17 July 2016.
 
During this campaign period, Hyundai technicians will be on standby from 10am till 5pm to conduct safety checks and advise car owners accordingly should there be issues with their cars or worn out parts that need replacement. As part of the safety campaign, car owners will also be educated on safety measures and proper car maintenance to ensure that their cars are problem-free. Participating Shell stations include:
 
▪  Shell NKVE (Lebuhraya Utara Selatan, KM15.8) – 29 May
▪  Shell Sinaran Tuah Selatan (Batu 11, Lebuhraya Pontian-Johor Bahru) – 5 June
▪  Shell Isfa Filling Station (Lebuhraya Sg Petani-Juru, KM141.8) – 12 June
▪  Shell Merdeka Jayabumi Enterprise (Arah KL PLUS Mukim KM28.7 – near Jalan Duta Toll) – 17 July
 
According to a recent news report, road accidents were up by 3 per cent to 489,606 cases last year compared with the year before and it has been on an upward trend year-on-year. Traffic volume increases on highways especially during festive seasons resulting in higher risks of accidents. With this safety awareness campaign, HSDM hopes to raise awareness on the importance of regular car maintenance to prevent untoward incidences and accidents.
 
“We hope our efforts will help curb the rising number of accidents especially on highways,” said Mr Lau Yit Mun, Managing Director of HSDM. “Road accidents are caused by many factors which include human errors and recklessness but a lot of times it has to do with poor car maintenance as well. The most common cause of car skidding is due to worn out brake pads and tyres.”
