For a sixth year in a row GLOBUL and GERMANOS launch their joint Drive Safely! Use hands-free! advisory campaign for safe driving and responsible use of mobile phones behind the wheel. The start of the initiative was announced at a news conference held on the 3th of July at the parking area of Arena Mladost Cinema Hall in Sofia.
The main partner of this year's campaign is the Union of Bulgarian Motorists (UBM), while the four-time Bulgarian rally champion and GLOBUL Rally Team driver Krum Donchev is the official ambassador. GLOBUL and GERMANOS national advisory campaign is aimed at encouraging responsible driving and improving road safety in the country. The 2012 initiative targets novice drivers.
At the event, Krum Donchev showed some useful techniques for safe driving. The car for the test drive was equipped with a special device that creates a feeling of a slippery road and is often used for professional trainings. The guests of the event also had the chance to take the test drive and meet-and-greet with Krum Donchev.
GLOBUL Corporate Affairs Director Mr. Yassen Guev presented hands-free devices to the UBM official representatives, and to all driving instructors who attended the event. They also received leaflets with tips for safe driving and stickers with the logo of the campaign. The event was held with the support of Arena Mladost Cinema Hall in Sofia.
"Drive Safely! Use hands-free! is a long-term initiative that expands its scope each year in order to reach the public. We believe that improving road safety depends mostly on knowing and observing the rules by both novice and experience drivers, and by all other participants in the road traffic as well." - Mr. Yassen Guev commented.
"Every driver, no matter of his experience and knowledge, should be responsible and tolerant on the road, because streets are not a place for racing. Concentration behind the wheel is essential for the safety of the driver and his companions in the car. That is why I always use hands-free device while driving." - Krum Donchev explained.
