The ‘Michelin Road Safety Campaign’ was initiated in 1991 under the collaboration of both public and private sectors, with the aim of reducing road accidents and increasing road safety awareness. The Campaign is divided into three projects, as follows:
In an attempt to prevent and decrease road accidents, Michelin has joined forces with the Department of Automotive Engineering Technology, King Mongkut’s University of Technology North Bangkok – in setting up a public service unit to offer car check-ups; as well as to educate motorists about road safety and road accident prevention, tyre maintenance, and the importance of maintaining the correct tyre pressure.
With a strong commitment to promote road safety awareness among the Thai youth, Michelin has collaborated with a number of public and independent sectors – including the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, the Don’t Drive Drunk Foundation, and the local police – in hosting activities designed to enhance knowledge and understanding of traffic rules, while encouraging adults and children to wear helmets when riding bicycles and motorcycles.
