Mercedes-Benz Malaysia continues to work hard in order to make roads safer for children, and for the upcoming Raya celebrations, they will be offering free rental of child seats. From 1st July 2015 onwards, a total of 110 child seats will be available to the public.
Mercedes-Benz Malaysia Vice President, Passenger Cars, Mark Raine kicked off the event by saying, “Safety has always been a key pillar for Mercedes-Benz. We hope that our rental campaign, which will begin during this travel season and continue for the rest of 2015, will assist families who are travelling with young children. While we encourage motorists to ensure that their vehicles are in good condition before a long drive, we also urge those travelling with young children to take advantage of this added safety feature to safeguard the occupants in the vehicle, especially children.”
The free child seat rental is part of “MobileKids”, a long term corporate social responsibility program that was initially started by Daimler AG in 2011. The program is aimed to keep parents and child safe on the road. In conjunction with the Hari Raya festive season, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia will start the 2015 MobileKids roadshow at The School Jaya One, Petaling Jaya. The roadshow is located at level 1 and is opened daily from 11 am till 7 pm.
The child seats provided by Mercedes-Benz Malaysia are ECE R44-compliant. Parents can choose between with ISOFIX-points and without ISOFIX-points, and protect kids of up to 25 kg. Parents can deposit (which is refundable) RM150 for the non-ISOFIX child seat and RM300 for the ISOFIX child seat for the period of one month. The campaign will run for six months, from July 2015 till December 2015.
“Comprehensive protection in all situations is the objective of our integral safety philosophy. We hope that together with the free child car seat rental campaign and MobileKids 2015, families will recognise the importance of child safety in vehicles. We also take this opportunity to wish everyone celebrating, Selamat Hari Raya and to remain safe on the roads while driving,” added Raine.
