THE Otomotif College (TOC) and the Lions Club Kuala Lumpur North (Lions Club) recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to formalise and strengthen their partnership in a Drive Smart Drive Safe (DS)2 project.
Under the MoU, selected speakers from the Lions Club will be trained by a team from TOC to conduct (DS)2 workshops, a series of free, road safety workshops for the public.
“It is our mission to contribute to the advancement of the automotive industry, including enhancing road safety awareness in Malaysia,” said TOC chief executive officer Adelaine Foo.
“We hope that, through this joint effort, we can help speakers from the Lions Club impart the message of smart and safe driving to as many Malaysians as possible,” Foo added.
The first (DS)2 workshop was conducted at the college after the signing ceremony. More than 300 members of the Lions Club attended the workshop, which focused on topics such as Safety Driving at Night, Defensive Driving, How to Handle Emergencies while Driving and DIY Car Inspections.
“This collaboration with TOC is in line with our club’s mission to champion community projects that will benefit the public,” said Lions Club president Lee Yew Foo.
“We hope to reach out to the public in East Malaysia over the next two years. However, I wish that everyone will practise safe and smart driving,” he added.
More (DS)2 workshops are scheduled to be held on Oct 18, Nov 15, and Dec 20.
