Another holiday, another balik kampung exodus; and as usual, Petronas Coffee Break will be there to make your drive back to the hometown a little bit more pleasant.
This Chinese New Year holidays, there will be two phases of the Petronas Coffee Break campaign, on January 29-30 and February 2-3 for the return leg. This year, Petronas will be giving out bright red goodie pouches to motorists, containing a can of Wonda Premium Coffee, a pack of crispy Julie’s Love Letters crackers and Petronas ang pow packets.
Organised for the 15th consecutive year, the company’s flagship road safety programme aims to educate motorists to embrace road safety measures during their journey. The Coffee Break campaign is available at 39 Petronas stations located along highways and major trunk roads nationwide.
“For 15 years, we have been offering our Petronas stations as a place for motorists to conveniently pull over to rest and refresh themselves with the complimentary serving of coffee and snacks. Our stations, which have been designed to provide total convenience under one roof, also serve to be the one-stop centre for motorists to fuel up, dine, top up their Touch N Go, withdraw cash as well as stock up on snacks and drinks for the family,” said Shaharuddin Muhammad Sidek, head of retail business division at Petronas Dagangan Berhad.
To ensure that adequate highway emergency services are available during this balik kampung period, Petronas will be contributing RM20,000 to fuel up St John Malaysia’s ambulances that are patrolling the highways. This initiative is being carried out by Petronas for the 20th consecutive year.
“At Petronas, our role is to remind all motorists on the importance of road safety and help them stay awake during the journey via our Coffee Break campaign. Malaysians need to know that everyone of us plays a role in keeping our roads safe for all to use. We all share the same roads and if we don’t drive responsibly, we are not just putting ourselves at risk but also others,” Shaharuddin added.
