Allianz Malaysia Berhad (Allianz Malaysia) held eight road safety advocacy campaigns across the country in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidilfitri to remind Malaysians to stay safe while driving during the festive break.
The series of campaigns began in Sibu on 18 May then Batu Pahat on 21 May, followed by Kota Kinabalu and Temerloh on 23 May, Tawau, Kuala Lumpur and Kuantan on 28, 29 and 31 May and ended in Kota Bharu on 2 June.
Allianz Malaysia gave away 30 pieces of first aid kits as well as 30 safety hammers and 30 sets of shoulder pads to motorist. In addition, 30 pieces of windbreakers and 150 pieces of Visibility Enhancing Material (VEM) were also distributed to motorcyclist during the campaigns. The Company’s branch employees were at the respective distribution points to help with the giveaway.
“We target these campaigns around festive seasons because the influx of cars on the roads during festive seasons heightens the probability for accidents. The campaigns aim to help reduce road accident risks and at the same time promote road safety awareness as many road accidents result from behaviour-related causes,” said Ng Siew Gek, Head of Allianz4Good of Allianz Malaysia Berhad.
“When road safety items are handed out during the campaigns, our employee volunteers explain to the motorists and motorcyclists the functions of the said items so that they understand the importance and usage of the items. For instance, the windbreakers and VEMs are essential for motorcyclist to keep warm and be visible while they are on the road while the safety hammer is a multi-tool that functions as a torchlight, beacon light, and seatbelt cutter, which can come in handy in the event of a vehicle breakdown or when an accident occurs.” added Siew Gek.
Besides that, Allianz Malaysia also offers a 24 – hour complimentary accident service for all its Allianz Motor Comprehensive policyholders. The Allianz Road Rangers service features seven touch points including a 24-hour call centre, Allianz Bike Brigade, Allianz Tow Trucks, claims assistance at police stations, transportation services, quick claims approval and vehicle delivery.
Allianz Malaysia has been advocating road safety since 2011 through initiatives such as the in-class and interactive road safety education programmes at schools as well as the road safety advocacy campaigns at accident prone areas. In collaboration with Jabatan Keselamatan Jalan Raya Malaysia (JKJR), Allianz Malaysia has carried out 201 road safety campaigns and programmes nationwide with more than 440 Allianz Malaysia employees trained by JKJR as Road Safety Ambassadors.
