Uber Bangladesh has organized a roundtable on “Road Safety – A Shared Responsibility” with its stakeholders.
The roundtable took place on 8th August.
Earlier, a month-long campaign was kicked off on July 10, through a video post Uber brand ambassador and cricketer Shakib Al Hasan.
As Bangladesh continued on its trajectory of growth, the role of road safety acquired immense importance.
A combination of policy initiatives and awareness building activities were needed to shine the light on the importance of road safety.
Speaking about the campaign Zulquar Quazi Islam, lead, Uber Bangladesh, said: “Most collisions are caused due to negligence and improper road etiquettes. Therefore, it is our endeavour to raise awareness about road safety and sensitize our riders and driver partners on road safety rules.
“The onus of road safety lies on everyone, and as responsible corporate citizens, Uber wants to express solidarity with the government’s vision of making Bangladesh’s roads safer.”
