Explained Datuk Suret Singh, “The Road Safety Department’s vision is ‘zero death resulting from road accidents’.  In signing this MoU with NHF, we are one step closer to fulfilling this vision.  Our role is to educate and increase the level of awareness of road safety amongst the public. Through advocacy programmes and collaboration with caring corporations such as NHF, we hope to achieve this vision”.
