Jaipur, Jan.19 (ANI): To spread the message of road safety in the city, Mr.Yunus Khan, Cabinet Minister, Transport and Mr. Babu lalji Verma, Minister of State, Transport, Govt of Rajasthan flagged-off the ‘Safe and Clean Ride’, a rally to celebrate Rajasthan Road Safety Week from Birla auditorium. The rally was led by India’s number one E-bike manufacturer, Hero Electric.
During the six-day rally, Hero Electric will showcase and give complimentary rides on its range of E-bikes at various venues during the five days of rally in order to give a closer experience of E-bikes to people of Jaipur.
The company intends to highlight the fact that E-bikes are a far safer city mobility option than conventional fuel fired two-wheelers due to better speed control, robust body design and technical superiority due to minimal mechanical interplays, besides being the environmentally best option.
Speaking on the occasion, Shammi Sharma, Vice President (Sales and Business Development), Hero Electric said, “We are proud to be associated with the Rajasthan Road Safety Week, as it is aimed at creating awareness among citizens about road safety while promoting a clean environment. As a part of the rally, we will encourage people to experience the comfort and safety of E-bikes while educating them about the benefits and utilities of electric vehicles.”
It may be known that India has the dubious distinction of having the maximum number of road accidents and deaths on roads in the world. Irresponsible driving, poorly maintained vehicles, high speed, bad road designs are major reasons for high accidents.
“One of the leading reasons for high fatalities on Indian roads is poorly maintained bikes. E-bikes on the other hand have superior designs and require minimum maintenance. Also, as the speed of the vehicle is controlled, it suits city commuters while providing a much safer drive around the city”, added Sharma. (ANI)
