Speaking on HIF’s commitment towards sensitizing India on road safety, Mr. Atsushi Ogata, Chairman, of Honda India Foundation said, “With the essence of road safety engrained in our DNA, we carefully curate our programs to drive the important message of safe riding and driving across age groups. Being a part of a driver’s journey from the beginning is another way of ensuring a safer road environment. With the conclusion of training to first batch, I am confident that these participants now have a better understanding of safely using the roads which will support us in the achievement of our vision of zero traffic collision fatalities.”
The scientifically devised learning course facilitates a combination of theoretical and practical training.
