Allianz Malaysia Berhad (Allianz Malaysia) held three road safety advocacy campaigns in conjunction with Chinese New Year to remind Malaysians to stay safe while driving back to their hometowns.
The campaign was conducted in front of Sekolah St. Xavier, Jalan Sultan Ahmad, Pulau Pinang (14 January), KL Sentral, Kuala Lumpur (22 January) and Toll Plaza Gambang, Kuantan (23 January). Allianz Malaysia employee volunteers were stationed at the respective locations to advocate road safety and distribute road safety items to the motorists and motorcyclists.
Throughout the three campaigns, Allianz Malaysia distributed a total of 90 safety hammers and 90 car seatbelt shoulder pads to motorists while 90 windbreakers, 78 adult helmets, 11 child helmets and 450 Visibility Enhancing Material (VEM) stickers were distributed to motorcyclists.
Allianz Malaysia Berhad Head of Allianz4Good Ng Siew Gek said that on average, Malaysians spend at least an hour or more on the roads every day. So it is important for them to be prepared for any emergency situation while staying safe and visible on the road. This is especially important when you are travelling with your loved ones during the festive period.
“Most Malaysians would take advantage of long weekends and public holidays to travel, what more when it’s a festive season where many would return to their hometowns to celebrate with their families. Road safety advocacy is especially important during this period of time so that everyone could reach their destination safely,” said Siew Gek.
“Visibility on the road is important for motorcyclists. Since 2011, we have distributed VEM stickers and windbreakers to ensure that riders stay safe on the road. Besides that, our safety hammer - a multi-tool that functions as torchlight, beacon light, and seatbelt cutter can come in handy in the event of a vehicle breakdown or in an accident,” added Siew Gek.
Allianz Malaysia has been advocating road safety nationwide since 2011 through initiatives such as in-class and interactive road safety education programmes at schools as well as road safety advocacy campaigns at accident prone areas. These programmes are conducted with the involvement of Allianz Malaysia employee volunteers, JKJR officials, Polis Diraja Malaysia (Traffic), Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalanraya (JPJ) and Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur and town council representatives from the respective states.
In the event of an accident, Allianz Motor Comprehensive customers are reminded to call the 24 – hour complimentary Allianz Road Rangers (1800-22-5542) for assistance. The Allianz Road Rangers service features six touch points including a 24-Hour Dedicated Call Center; Allianz Road Rangers: Bike brigade; Allianz Road Rangers Tow trucks; Transportation services; Allianz Motor ODX Claims; and Vehicle Delivery.
