Suzuki Motorcycles India Pvt Ltd. (SMIPL) has launched the #CaughtWithoutHelmet CSR campaign in the country. The company has introduced this initiative in an attempt to promote safe-riding habits and encouraging two-wheeler riders to always wear a helmet while riding. The campaign encourages by-standers to stimulate the behavioural change in riders, riding without a helmet, by clicking their pictures and uploading them on Facebook using the hashtag #CaughtWithoutHelmet. To promote this campaign, a series of short video films will be launched across Suzuki’s social-media properties such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Speaking about the #CaughtWithoutHelmet campaign, Mr. Sajeev Rajasekhran, EVP, Sales and Marketing, SMIPL said, “Approximately, one in every five fatal two-wheeler accidents are caused due to the rider not wearing an appropriate helmet. Studies also show that wearing the helmet improves the chances of survival by upto 42%! Yet, when we conversed with our young-customers, we realised that while they were aware that helmets enhance safety, they were also casual about wearing it at all times. Through #CaughtWithoutHelmet campaign, we want to encourage a behavioural change where helmet is seen as the most-important riding accessory." The #CaughtWithoutHelmet campaign will have a sustenance with more digital campaign and BTL activations lined-up for the coming days.

"Since the youth today is very conscious of their social-media imagery, the #CaughtWithoutHelmet campaign leverages digital media to call-out offenders who do not follow the basics of riding a two-wheeler,” added Mr. Sajeev. The first video film, which went on-air on Sunday, coinciding with the national road-safety week, takes a quirky approach to promote helmet awareness. The male-protagonist, riding without the helmet, ‘poses voluntarily’ for the ‘female protagonist’; oblivious to the fact that his picture was being uploaded on social-media. When he realises that he has become ‘famous’ for the wrong reasons, and that people were laughing at him, he feels embarrassed. The video-film closes with the message - ‘Famous is one thing. Infamous is another. Do not get #CaughtWithoutHelmet.’
