Goodyear promotes road safety awareness

By CARSIFU | 24 May 2018

PETALING JAYA:  In an effort to increase road safety awareness, especially during this festive season, Goodyear has expanded its road safety awareness campaign to more areas in the Klang Valley.

The campaign aims to provide patrons with free tyre checks and 10-point vehicle checks, on top of the distribution of a Goodyear Hari Raya Thoughtful Pack which contains simple tyre safety tips.

This is part of Goodyear’s Better Future initiative – the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) commitment.

Ben Hoge, Managing Director at Goodyear Malaysia Berhad said, “At Goodyear, we remain committed in instilling road safety awareness among the public and ensuring they are safe on the road as always. What separates a driver from the road is the tyres that they use; however, they may forget to have their vehicles and tyres checked regularly due to a busy lifestyle.

“Every driver has the responsibility to ensure the safety of their vehicles and help reduce the high accident rates, which spikes every year during festive seasons. If more people are careful on the road, we will be able to protect our loved ones during this balik kampung season.”

Over the course of its awareness program, Goodyear will bring its free tyre check service to selected shopping malls and offices in the Klang Valley.

It will also distribute booklets that feature a basic tyre safety checklist and maintenance tips, to empower road users to uphold the responsibilities of checking their tyres and be safe on the road.

Consumers can visit Quill City Mall on May 26, 2018 to get a free tyre check and receive a copy of the safety booklet, to better understand how they can keep their tyres safe on the road.

Meanwhile, the Goodyear Hari Raya campaign will also be offering a nationwide promotion from May to June 2018, with participating outlets offering customers up to RM80 AEON or Giant vouchers with every purchase of four Goodyear tyres, depending on pattern purchased.
