With this approach to safety, Honda began exploring new & innovative ways to ensure people’s safety on roads in the challenging times of new normal and started digital trainings. We are delighted to digitally reach out to more than 2 Lac kids & adults in just 6 months. Further, we will continue to make the most of these virtual platforms for educating people on essential road safety lessons.”
