Isuzu, Auto Express unveil road safety campaign
By Victor MUJIDU
Isuzu (EA) in collaboration with AutoXpress has unveiled a national health screening program targeting school bus drivers to improve road safety.
The one-month drive will also see such beneficiaries get access to free medical checkups and subsequent tests for common illnesses to guarantee their well-being while on the road.

Isuzu East Africa Managing Director, Rita Kavashe, said the screening program was a timely affair and whose other aim is to boost transportation efforts in the sector, while at the same time appreciating motorists for their self-sacrifice.
“Transport and logistics sector have the obligation of facilitating the movement of goods and people. Drivers are our customers too and we do recognize their role in supporting our economy.
We are therefore launching the ‘Health Screening Program’ as a demonstration of our appreciation for their sacrifice and commitment to their wellbeing, and safety of pupils and students,” noted Kavashe.

Similarly, AutoXpress Managing Director, Sandeep Shah, acknowledged the drive saying it was a step toward zero road accidents while at the same time improving fitness in terms of health and check-up exercise.
The AutoXpress firm, which is an importer, distributor, and retailer of tires and other automotive accessories, plays a key role in ensuring the safety of both drivers and passengers.
“Safety is a value that is reflected in all our operations. That is why this campaign is very important to us. The potentially life-saving health check-up exercise certainly improves fitness and road safety and, on that account, we are always obliged to keep the drivers and everyone around them safe on the roads,” noted Mr. Shah.
According to Isuzu East Africa sources, this year’s drivers’ health screening campaign aims to cover over 5000 school bus drivers across the country, with the initial roll-out slated for Mombasa, Kisii, Kisumu, Nakuru, Uasin Gishu, and Nairobi counties to officially roll out the campaign.
