We dropped by the Sungai Buloh Overhead Bridge R&R area this evening, where Perodua launched its Road Safety Campaign in time for the upcoming Hari Raya celebrations. Perodua joined forces with the Road Safety Department on this one, which is part of the carmaker’s corporate responsibility programme.

At the R&R area, Perodua offered free 22-point inspection service for all Perodua vehicles and distributed road safety flyers to PLUS highway users.

Perodua will be part of the Petronas Coffee Break campaign over the balik kampung period, so the same free car inspection will be repeated at the Tapah R&R (northbound) and Ayer Keroh Overhead Bridge R&R (southbound) from August 15 to 17 and only at the Ayer Keroh rest stop (northbound) from August 24 to 26.

This is in addition to the company’s earlier announced Tweckbot service. Tweckbot, which returns for the third time this Raya season, allows customers to make an appointment with a mobile inspection team via Twitter (@MYPerodua), Facebook (MYPerodua) or SMS to 016-6020287.

The Tweckbot 20-point safety check includes inspection of the engine, transmission, cooling system, brake system, power steering system, clutch system, tyres, suspension system, electrical system, passenger compartment and doors.

Perodua or not, make sure that your car is in good running condition before making the long journey home. Do take some time to share any tips or experience from the annual exodus here.
