Wear Seat Belts
Road Safety and Seat Belts
Do you know? – that it was on 27th April 1989 – Mandatory seat belt law was made effective in Italy. Seat belts were invented by English Engineer George Cayley.
Personally, I love to promote #Safety initiatives and in particular #RoadSafety. Here are some examples:
Total’s Golden Rule # On Traffic says, We must Wear Seat Belts when we are in a moving car. Rule No. 2 of Total’s 12 Golden Rules emphasize focus on Road Safety.
If you wish to introduce your children to Total’s 12 Golden Rules and to know more (click here)
This is the best time and opportunity.
By the way, TOTAL, is Committed To Road Safety and is actively committed to road safety and works in partnership with leading stakeholders. In particular, Total is:

Every second day there is a death happening on our roads in Kerala. Mostly bike riders. In order to remind, alert daily, I have released the 2nd road safety campaign to be printed and exhibited on a big Flex board in our home at Irinjalakuda, Kerala. The road in front is an extremely busy stretch.
