Perodua today gifted 100 GearUp child seats to lucky Perodua owners travelling with children aged between two to six at selected Petronas stations along the Peninsular ahead of the Raya festive season.
As part of the national carmaker’s on-going five-year Road Safety Campaign, Perodua partnered with Petronas to distribute the Toddler seats at Petronas stations at Rawang PLUS highway, Bentong Karak Highway and Seremban KL-Seremban Highway rest areas. The Toddler seat is designed for children weighing 9 to 36 kg.
Perodua Sales Sdn Bhd Managing Director Dato’ Dr Zahari said: “Over two million vehicles are expected to hit the roads this Raya. That’s a lot of vehicles, and naturally, there is a higher risk of collisions and accidents”
“We took this special initiative because we care for the well-being of our customers and their families. We hope Malaysians will come to realise how important it is to keep children properly secured in child seats while on the move,” he added.
Introduced during their Road Safety Campaign in October 2017, Perodua’s GearUp child seats are available in two models – Infant seat and Toddler seat, the former is suitable for infants weighing up to 13 kg. Both models are also ISOFIX compatible and comply with ECE R44 safety standards.
Interested parties can purchase these GearUp child seats for an introductory price of RM622.50 for the Infant seat (RM640 in East Malaysia) while the Toddler seat is priced at RM736 (RM754.50 in EM). The introductory price, without GST, is valid until 30 June 2018.
“Seat belts are designed to restrain adults and not children. Please secure your young ones in child seats, ideally in the back seat, and do not place them on your laps when the vehicle is in motion. Always buckle up in the front and in the back, use your turn signals and do not operate your mobile devices on the move. Above all, drive carefully and have a safe journey back to your hometowns,” concluded Dato’ Dr Zahari.
