KUALA LUMPUR: Allianz Malaysia gave out 600 reflective stickers, 30 child-safety booster seats and 50 helmets to motorists at KL Sentral here recently.
The road safety advocacy campaign was done in collaboration with the Road Safety Department (JKJR).
JKJR programme and project implementation division director, Mohd Rusdi Mohd Darus, said the role of the department was to provide consultation on safety guidelines for the campaign.
"The reflective stickers will help to make motorcyclists more visible at night.
"They should also wear full-face helmet instead of other types to give them better protection," he said, adding that securing the helmet will help save lives.
During the campaign, motorcyclists had Sirim-approved helmets in exchange for their already worn-out or unsafe ones.
The child-safety booster seats were given to children below 12 years of age.
Allianz general insurance company chief executive officer, Zakri Khir, said they wanted the public to care about children's safety.
"The child seat will help put the children in the position where they can be strapped with the seatbelt at the right place, not at the face or neck," said Zakri.
He added that the company would be giving 10,000 child-seat boosters for this campaign throughout the year.
This is its eighth nationwide road-safety campaign since last year.
Also present were Road Transport Department enforcement officers to help direct motorists to the roadside.
