Goodyear Malaysia has partnered with the Road Safety Department of Malaysia (JKJR) to organise a road safety workshop for a safer driving environment for Malaysian drivers as their numbers have continued to increase by the year.
The workshop aims to educate road users on the many potential risks that may occur while driving and to stay composed should one encounter unsavoury road hazards and conditions.
“This joint initiative together with JKJR is part of our continuous efforts to create a platform in increasing awareness on road safety. It is our commitment to offer quality products and services to ensure drivers are more prepared and equipped when they are on the road to face various road and weather conditions. A program such as the Worry Free Assurance that we’ve introduce together with this workshop is designed for drivers to have a better, safer, and quality driving experience,” said Goodyear Malaysia, Managing Director, Ben Hoge.
The workshop included tips on how to tackle unforeseen road hazards, maintenance of vehicle and tyres and pointers on choosing the right tyres for purposes of safety, efficiency and durability. According to the Road Safety Plan of Malaysia (2014 – 2020), road defects and tyre defects were some of the major contributing factors of accidents in 2013.
In line with promoting a peace-of-mind driving experience, Goodyear also introduced the Worry Free Assurance programme which covers irreparable damages caused by road hazards. This program is available across a wide range of products and customers can enjoy the benefit of road hazard assurance for 6 months with eligible claims of one-to-one tyre replacements at any authorised Goodyear Autocare or Servitekar. Customers are also given a worry-free payment option, which is a 0% interest installment plan for tyres that are under the Worry Free Assurance Program.
