Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India, a company that has been going from strength to strength in the Indian two-wheeler market, is trying to become a customer favourite by taking CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) initiatives. Reports regarding its collaboration with various state authorities for spreading awareness about safety and road knowledge are well known via the concept of a Traffic Park. Now, the firm has gone ahead to inaugurate its first Traffic Park in the state of Maharashtra that will be located in Yeola, Nasik. In addition, the Traffic Park inaugurated by Honda has been established in cooperation with Yeola Industrial Co-Operative Estate Limited.

Spread over an area of 170000 square feet, this Traffic Park will have Honda road safety trainers take part in teaching the enrolled students on a daily basis about what are dangers in Indian conditions and how one should go ahead and work towards being safe. According to company claims, there is room for massive improvement in the way Indian people handle traffic conditions and a number of problems can be averted if the right approach is followed by people. Learning how to ride vehicles is not a difficult thing and Honda believes women, who are a little short of confidence when it comes to this particular skill, can also learn driving in just one day if they pay proper attention.

As a good corporate citizen, Honda will continue to invest in educating the riders and inculcating safe riding habits across India,” he said.
