At each stop, ASEAN NCAP Road Tour crew will organize several activities, fun contest and lucky draws in its aim to attract more attention of car users towards appreciating safety in cars. Two universities are also selected – Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Skudai, Johor and Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) at Nibong Tebal Campus, Penang – in order to meet ASEAN NCAP’s focus for youth as new car buyers. The closing ceremony will be held at the last stop at R&R Jejantas Sungai Buloh on Sat (28 Feb).

ASEAN NCAP Secretary-General, Mr. Khairil Anwar Abu Kassim said, “We have two main aims for this tour, first is to keep promoting and educating the public about car safety and NCAP, and second is to focus on the young car users based on our strategic approach. At the two universities, we will have technical talk with the students on road safety and the ASEAN NCAP program. I hope we could gain more support from Malaysian road users towards our “safer vehicle” agenda.”
