Al-Futtaim Motors, leader in sustainable mobility and exclusive distributor of Toyota and Lexus, in the UAE, has announced its official sponsorship of Dubai Police’s participation in the Ministry of Interior’s “Summer Without Accidents” campaign aiming at promoting road safety among residents in the UAE and educating motorists on summer-related accident causes.
Yousuf Al Raeesi, Director of Government Affairs at Al-Futtaim Motors, said: “Al-Futtaim Motors’ efforts to promote safety go many years back and vary between anti-counterfeit campaigns, drivers training and school outreach programs, to name just a few. Participating in this initiative cements our decades-long partnership with the Dubai Police and reiterates our commitment to safety. Using an advanced suite of technologies, our Toyota and Lexus cars come equipped with the most comprehensive safety features aiming at helping the driver avoid potential accidents, and lessening the consequences of a collision. We take this opportunity to remind motorists about the necessity to periodically maintain their cars, check their tyre pressure and condition, and to always use genuine car parts to avoid putting their lives and the lives of others at risk”.
Both Lexus and Toyota cars provide a comprehensive suite of safety technologies, that can minimize the probability of an accident, and reduce the consequences of a collision. Depending on the model, the key safety features include, Pre-Crash System, a combination of collision detection and collision preparation systems, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control which supplements the conventional system with a vehicle-to-vehicle distance control mode and helps maintain a suitable distance from the preceding vehicle, Lane-Keeping Assist which detects lane markings on the road and then provides information and steering assistance in accordance with the road and driving conditions, Automatic High Beam which detects nearby lights and automatically switches between high beams and low beams to ensure optimum night-time visibility, in addition to Parking Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Blind Spot Monitor, Vehicle Stability Control and Anti-lock Braking System.
Al-Futtaim Motors had earlier announced its partnership with Abu Dhabi Police and SAAED for the Prevention of Traffic Accidents in Abu Dhabi, to support their ‘Traffic Safety Awareness Initiatives & Events 2017’.
