United Toyota Safety March
Event Location: United Toyota, Bunts Hostel
United Toyota, in association with Mangalore Coastal Round Table 190, conducted a walkathon on April 26 under the leadership of A Ram Gopal Rao and A Varun Rao, the directors of United Toyota. The Road Safety week was inaugurated on April 23 at United Toyota by A Prabhakar Rao, the chairman of United Toyota.
Though the awareness about traffic rules and regulations is high among the public, India still has the world’s highest number of road deaths. The walkathon was conducted to promote seriousness among the public about safety on the roads like wearing seat belts, wearing of helmets, adhering to traffic signal, non-usage of cell phones while driving etc. Toyota is one of the global leaders in safety standards and always strives towards the ultimate goal of zero traffic accident fatalities.
The walkathon was flagged off at Navbharath Circle, Kodialbail by Chairman of MCRT 190 Sudeesh Karunakarn. About 65 employees of United Toyota took part in the road rally by holding placards carrying messages promoting awareness about road safety, from Navbarath Circle Kodialbail to United Toyota showroom at Kadri Road, covering major areas of the city.
