Nissan has launched a safety driving forum in India. The program was held on 16th and 17th of February 2013 and was conducted in the parking area of the Inorbit Mall, Malad, Mumbai. The main aim of the program is to raise awareness of road safety and highlight the benefits of safety technologies in cars.
The two-day activity enables the participants to learn about safety through panel displays and simulator devices, which were named as “Rollover Simulator” and “Low Speed Crash simulator”.
