Keeping up with its commitment of prioritizing the safety and well-being of its fleet, foodpanda recently organized a road safety awareness session for its riders, which was conducted by the Islamabad Capital Territory (ICT) Traffic Police.
The session was followed by a talk from the SSP ICT Traffic Police Dr Mustafa Tanveer. The training aimed at ensuring that all riders strictly follow the traffic rules and drive with more responsibility and care, not only for their own safety but also for the safety of all drivers and pedestrians on the roads.
Speaking on the occasion, Hassan Arshad, Director Policy & Communications at foodpanda Pakistan, stated that delivery riders spend a lot of time on roads and at all hours, making it essential that they are adequately coached on safe driving practices. “We believe that road accidents are entirely preventable and more sessions like these to be organized to train the riders all over the country as the company is cognizant of its responsibility in mentoring its delivery riders.” He further added.
