BANGKOK, Thailand, 4 November 2014 —-– Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd., in collaboration with the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM), Nation TV and Nation Broadcasting Corporation PCL (NBC), is launching its safe driving programme called “Honda Dream Road” (Phase 2) during this November and December at the Honda Safety Driving Centre in Bangkok and at participating Honda dealers and service centres nationwide.

The programme aims to provide safe driving knowledge for preparation prior to travel during the New Year’s holidays. Interested applicants can apply at http://www.nationtv.tv/dreamroad; at Nation TV, telephone 02 338 3600; and at the participating Honda dealers and service centres located nationwide.  There is no cost to join the safe driving programme.

Chief Operating Officer of Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd., Pitak Pruittisarikorn said, “Throughout the years, Honda has focused on launching an array of new passenger cars in response to Thai customers’ lifestyles as well as making society a better place by increasing awareness of safety and traffic law compliance through ongoing campaigns such as last year’s ‘Honda First Car Safety Drive’ programme, conducted in co-operation with the DDPM under the supervision of the Ministry of Interior and NBC, to train first car buyers, not limited to Honda users, about safe driving.

In addition, the company has organised the ‘Safety Driving Instructor’ skill competition to enhance safe driving practices through our dealers, who offer safe driving courses for their customers nationwide. Honda currently has 200 dealers with more than 360 highly-qualified trainers.  Regarding the ‘Honda Dream Road’ programme (Phase 1), the training held during last June and July was a huge success, with over 1,600 participants.

“This time, Honda is running our second safe driving programme, ‘Honda Dream Road’ Phase 2, during November and December 2014 to help drivers prepare for travel during the New Year’s long holidays and educate them about safe driving skills.  Each year, many people go on a journey and return to their hometowns. All participants will gain a wide range of knowledge including preparation prior to driving, safe driving, driving etiquette, traffic rules and signs, basic car maintenance, and fuel-saving driving tips, with no charge for joining in the programme.”

Deputy Director-General of the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM), Anusorn Kaewkangwan stated, “Road accidents are considered a major national concern, so require the co-operation of many government departments and the private sector to address the problem.  The loss of lives and property caused by road accidents is estimated to be around an average of 2.5% of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP). According to WHO statistics, Thailand was ranked sixth-highest in the world for road fatalities, with the rate of road accidents usually higher during the New Year’s and Songkran festivals.  The DDPM is pleased to co-operate with Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd. and NBC to initiate this outstanding programme which benefits Thai people by helping to reduce road accidents in the country.”

The training course will take place at the Honda Safety Driving Centre in Ramkhamhaeng, Bangkok, on 20 December 2014, and at participating Honda dealers and service centres nationwide during November and December 2014.

The list of the participating Honda dealers and service centres nationwide is as follows:
