Jakarta, 20 May 2019 – Total is committed to safety and this commitment includes communicating the importance of driving safely to road users. As a part of this commitment, PT Total Oil Indonesia, an affiliate of the fourth largestoil and gas company in the world, presents “Posko Santai Total” at the buffer area in Tanjung Priok Port, on May 21 – 23, 2019. The event aimed to remind drivers on the importance of keeping the body fit along the journey and also to increase awareness to drive safely.
Based on the data released by the Indonesian Police, there were 899 accidents happening only during 2018 Eid festive period, resulting in 193 fatalities. Quoting the statement of Indonesian Police, these accidents are dominated by human error, mostly fatigue and lack of sleep. Driving with unfit conditions means negligence to safe driving principles.
