The event's theme is 'Road Safety Saves' and the activities will be geared towards educating pedestrians, motorcyclists and motorists how to use roadways properly.

For chief executive officer of RUBiS Alain Carreau, the expo's focus aligns with the company's commitment to the safety of the Jamaican roads and the motorist population at large.

“Our participation in this event is part of a wider strategic initiative to ensure the highest standards of safety is practised across their network of service stations, as well as the general public — both drivers and pedestrians. A part of our efforts include using our social media platforms and creation of a road safety pamphlet which was available online,” explained the RUBiS CEO.

Carreau noted that their partnership with Grennell's Driving School will not just be resigned to the upcoming expo.

“We are happy to note that our partnership with Grennell's will go beyond the expo and will be exploring other opportunities to continue and expand the all-important education to improve road safety and save lives,” he added.

Expo organiser, Alphonso Grennell, who is also the managing director of Grennell's Driving School, expressed that the support of RUBiS is essential to the success of the expo.

“We need the support of all, especially corporate companies like RUBiS, as we raise the awareness of road safety in Jamaica. The situation is dire and we need all hands on deck to tackle what is a grave issue in this country,” said Grennell.

RUBiS' booth at the expo, which is in its 10th year, will be centred on raising awareness about road safety among the youth, who are expected to make up a great number of the attendees at the event.

“Our focus for the event is to work with the schoolchildren present as we believe it is imperative to engage and educate them about road safety practices from an early age. We will also be showing videos, providing tips on safer driving practices, maximising fuel economy with their Ultra Tec Fuels, and ensuring their vehicles are safe on the roads” explained Carreau.

The expo will be held at the Ranny Williams Entertainment Centre in Kingston from 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday, June 16.
