Bridgestone Vietnam chose Da Nang to be the 3rd place to hold the campaign "Drive home safe with Bridgestone” on 17th December, 2016. In end-of-year busy traffic time, that Bridgestone gives out high quality reflective sticker sets to enhance the visibility of the vehicles while being operated in night time is a meaningful and practical contribution to improve safety for truck and bus drivers.

The first "Drive home safe with Bridgestone" event was first held in HCMC, then has continued to hold similar events in Daklak in August. Under this plan, more than 8,000 reflective sets which similar to traffic signs in visual recognition, will be given out to truck, bus and container drivers across the country, along with more than 5,000 safety driving handbooks

With the success of the previous campaigns, Da Nang has been chosen as the next venue of the program, as it is located in the center of the north-south national road, with large amount vehicles daily. The event takes place at Ngoc Hanh Trading & Service Company, right on National Road 1A, Phuoc Hoa Hamlet, Hoa Vang District, Da Nang City. Accordingly, 200 trucks, buses were equipped with the reflective sets valued 500,000 dong for free.

Talking about this campaign of Bridgestone, Director of Ngoc Hanh Trading & Service Company, Ms. Tran Thi Hanh said: "The gift is small, however it has significant meaning to the safety of truck drivers, passenger buses and other vehicles on the road. We have noticed the excitement and joy of the driver as they receiving this gift. On Bridgestone side, this is a very good community activity to be honored and acknowledged. This campaign also shows the concern and sympathy of Bridgestone Vietnam for truck and bus drivers, whose job are harsh and stressful.”

Driver Nguyen Van Nam said: "Year-end months are the busiest time for us. Ensuring driving safety in crowded traffic conditions under time pressure is difficult. Therefore, this gift is very meaningful. I frequently travel long distances at night. Sometimes it’s not because I don’t focus, but the vision and ability to recognize remotely in the dark is very limited. The fact that many damaged vehicles stalled midway without signs or signal lights put drivers into very dangerous situations. Many drivers just use small tree branch for remote warning. Reflective stickers would be very useful in this case”.

After Da Nang, Bridgestone will continue to bring the program to Hanoi and other provinces across the country with desire to express our gratitude to the drivers and hope to bring the safety for drivers while they are on their journey in order to set mind at rest and "drive home safe".
