Gombak, 27 May 2019 – Boustead Petroleum Marketing Sdn Bhd (BHPetrol) launched its 2019 Hari Raya Balik kampung Road Safety Awareness campaign today. The one-day campaign, mainly to create awareness amongst road users to stay safe during the Hari Raya Balik Kampung, is targeted at users who are plying the Karak Highway, heading back towards the East Coast states, thus it was held at the BHPetrol station located just after the Gombak Toll plaza, a popular place for motorists to stop to fill up on petrol and perhaps to stock up on snacks and refreshments.
The campaign is held on an annual basis, and this year, the Road Safety Department Malaysia (JKJR) endorsed the programme by setting up a booth to disseminate information on road safety. Puspakom also was an active participant, mobilizing their mobile test bed to provide free testing for public vehicles. The inspection regime includes exhaust emission, suspension testing, lights, brakes and glass transparency level.
In the spirit of Hari Raya ‘Balik Kampung’, customers who fill up their tanks with Infiniti fuels are given goody bags of snacks and drinks, as well as duit raya, while stocks lasted.
Mr. Tan Khim Thiam, Managing Director of BHPetrol said, “Once again we choose BHPetrol KL-Karak service station because it is located just after the Gombak Toll Plaza which is the starting point for motorists heading back to the East Coast. It is a great location for road travelers to stop by as it offers all the necessities to ease travelling needs. Safety is always our top priority; hence we hope all our customers will practice safe driving during their journey back home to enjoy the Raya celebration with their loved ones.”
