myTukar wishes everyone a Happy Lunar New Year 2020!
With the Lunar New Year coming up, thousands are bound to head out of the city for festive celebration. The Malaysian Road Transport Department and responsible Automotive companies are again reminding motorists to stay safe on the road during peak and non-peak times through the festive period.
One of the biggest tyre companies in the country Goodyear Malaysia is initiating the Worry Free Assurance program CNY campaign to encourage motorists to change their cars’ tyres, if necessary and especially worn out tyres. When you purchase a pair of Goodyear tyres, from now until 28 February, you’ll get a chance to win petrol gift cards worth up to RM1,688.
Steps to observe for a safe journey
The most important component of a car is the tyres. Tyres are the most important aspect because it is the only thing that separates the road and the car. With good tyres, the chances of being affected by hazards becomes significantly lower. In the event of an evasive manoeuvre, a driver can escape a certain near-accident situation, with new tyres. A fresh set of tyres also assist to save fuel over long distance travels. It is important to note that tyre pressure mustn’t be ignored, to ensure the tyres last longer and don't fail you when needed most.
Other notable factors to ensure a safe journey during the festive period include car fluids topped or filled up before the journey, fuel up, ensure TouchnGo or Smartag is topped up for required journey, bring snacks and beverages, don’t remove standard tools from the car, and lastly get a good rest the night before the journey.
