Grab unveiled “Safer Everyday Tech Roadmap” which comprises product enhancements that aim to eliminate preventable incidents, encourage safer user habits and drive long-term changes in road behavior.
Tan Hooi Ling, Co-founder of Grab said, “The Safer Everyday Tech Roadmap is an extension of Grab’s current efforts in Southeast Asia. We’re committed to work with governments in every country that we’re in to support them in their safety priorities, so expect more to come after today’s partnership announcements.”
Grab has collaborated with the Mandalay Region Traffic Police, Myanmar Police Force and Lamin Driving School to launch a series of road safety trainings for all two-wheel and three-wheel Grab driver-partners in Mandalay. “On behalf of Mandalay Region Traffic Police, Myanmar Police Force, we would like to commend Grab for taking the lead on improving transport safety standards in Mandalay. We believe this programme will help contribute to safer roads in Mandalay and give commuters better peace of mind. We look forward to collaborating with Grab and to share our knowledge about how we can educate drivers and increase awareness about road safety”, said Deputy Police Major Kyaw Kyaw Aung from the Mandalay Region Traffic Police.
“We know that everyone has loved ones who care for their well-being and want to see them come home safely. This is why we have always seen it as our responsibility to improve transport safety, and the reason we continue to invest in new safety features and initiatives such as the Share My Ride app feature and more recently, providing personal accident insurance coverage for free to drivers and passengers. Today, we are going a step further by introducing a new Road Safety Training Workshop, which will encourage stronger awareness of road safety and traffic regulations in Mandalay as well as promote better driving behaviors to ensure the personal safety for drivers and passengers,” said Alvin Loh, Acting Country Head of Grab Myanmar.
