ABOUT SOS

Whenever you think of high-risk activities, driving a car or crossing the street don’t usually come to mind. However, arriving at your destination safely every day is really something to be thankful for, as thousands of lives are lost in road accidents every year!
Accidents happen when we least expect them - we could be heading out to a shopping mall, driving over to a friend’s house, or waiting for a bus!

  2. New Straits Times, 18 January 2017: Number of fatal road accidents up in 2016, more than 7,000 lives lost

WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT


You can help save lives.

At Tune Protect, we do everything we can to provide affordable protection to suit everyone’s needs – it’s what we do best. Now, we need you to help by putting your creativity to good use!

The Safety on Streets (SOS) Challenge is your chance to come up with ideas for a creative and effective app that will help Malaysian drivers, motorcyclists and pedestrians stay safe on the road. So you get to do some good and while you’re at it, stand a chance to win these amazing prizes!

For example, you could come up with an app idea to help drivers get alerts on accident prone areas or to assist visually-impaired people to cross the road or for cyclists to find out which roads in the Klang Valley have dedicated bike lanes. The possibilities are endless!
