Audi Highlights the importance of Road Safety with Child Seat Campaign

Kuwait, 02 November, 2017: Fouad Alghanim & Sons Automotive Company, the official Audi dealer for Kuwait, champions road safety with its new child seat campaign.

The campaign is part of Audi’s ongoing efforts to increase safe driving habits within the community. According to statistical figures released by the General Directorate of Traffic in Kuwait, there were a total of 71,582 road accidents during 2016, with a total of 424 killed as a result. Studies show that using a child seat in a vehicle can reduce the risk of a fatal injury to a child by 71%.

Tarek alShafie, Dealer Principle and General Manager, Fouad Alghanim & Sons Automotive Company, Audi Kuwait said, “As a responsible car brand, we continuously look to support the cause of increased road safety and awareness in the State of Kuwait. With road accidents claiming young lives needlessly, we aim to provide customers solutions to safely transport their loved ones.”

Vehicle owners can safeguard their children with Audi child seats that adhere to the ECE-R 44/04 statutory safety standards alongside other additional safety criteria such as Euro NCAP. Studies have shown the importance of installing a minimum of three different seats based on the child’s body weight and age before the child is big enough to travel in the vehicle without a child seat. Audi offers three child seat options – Audi Baby Seat for babies weighing up to 13kg, Audi Child Seat for children weighing between 9 – 18 kg, and Audi Youngster Plus Seat for children weighing from 15 – 36 kg.

The complete selection of Audi child seats are available at the Audi Kuwait Showroom and Service Center, located in Shuwaikh Industrial Area – Pepsi Cola Street. Working hours are from 9:00am to 1:00pm and 4:30pm to 8:30pm.
