Honda conducts Road Safety and Awareness Campaign in Chandigarh
Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI) continues its National Road Safety Awareness Campaign as the schools reopen after the pandemic. The campaign aims to increase awareness regarding road safety among citizens. A three-day camp was hosted at the Government Model Senior Secondary School, Sector 21, Chandigarh. Over 3,000 school students and staff members participated in the campaign. This is part of Honda's CSR commitment toward road safety that was announced back in 2021.
HMSI’s National Road Safety Awareness program made learning fun yet scientific through:
1. Interactive Session: HMSI’s specially trained road safety instructors educated 5 to 10 years old about the do’s and don’ts while commuting in a school bus and cycling.
2. Practical Learning: 11 to 12 years old learnt how to ride their bicycle safely, their duties as a pillion on a two-wheeler and the importance of safety gear on roads. To make this learning more practical and fun, kids got hands-on learning experience on the specially imported CRF50 motorcycles.
