Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSCI) continue to spread awareness of Road Safety. As a part of the National Road Safety Awareness Campaign in Nurpur, Himachal Pradesh, Honda is re-emphasising the need for road safety awareness among the people to build a collision-free India. The three-day event started on 28th June and ended on 30th June. Conducted at the Government Industrial Training Institute (ITI) in Nurpur, a total of 1,800 college students and staff members also participated in the event. HMSI’s road safety instructors utilised the age-appropriate road safety learning programs to impart road safety awareness to all.
Key Takeaways From The Road Safety Awareness Program
Honda’s skilled instructors also spoke about the road signs and markings, driver’s duties on the road, riding gear and posture explanation. These theory sessions set the foundation for further learnings of the day. Then to make the learning more interactive and interesting, a special training activity on Honda’s virtual riding simulator was also conducted. This was for all to experience over 100 possible dangers on the road before actual riding.
Participants were also given danger prediction training known as Kiken Yosoku Training (KYT). This will help greatly in enhancing rider/driver’s sensitivity to danger and ensures safe driving action on roads. For the current riders, Honda tested and honed their riding skills through slow riding activities and riding on narrow planks. There were also other fun activities like road safety games and quizzes to ensure maximum participation.
Honda Thrives For Zero Traffic Collision Fatalities
Being one of the largest automakers worldwide, Honda’s first priority has always been safety. To realise this, Honda set up a target to ensure zero traffic collision fatalities involving Honda motorcycles and automobiles globally by 2050. In India, the company has taken big steps to spread road safety awareness. This includes conducting daily programmes at its 10 adopted traffic parks across India and 7 Safety Driving Education Centres (SDEC). Furthermore, Honda has also started the digital road safety education initiative under the name, Honda Road Safety E-Gurukul.
