Nissan has begun its road safety initiative in India, the 'Nissan Safety Driving Forum’. The activities were held over two days in Noida, and were aimed at showcasing the benefits of safety equipment on cars.
There were static displays explaining safety features like lane departure warning, brake assist and ABS. Apart from these, two simulators were also on hand. One showed participants the benefits of seat belts by turning a Nissan Micra upside down with passengers seated inside, while the other simulated the forces experienced by passengers in case of a collision.
The forum was inaugurated by Rajeev Lochan, director, ministry of road transport and highways, Takayuki Ishida, MD and CEO, Nissan Motor India and Nitish Tipnis, director, Hover Automotive India.
