Written by TheMole

KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 24 2017 : Motorists making their long journey back to their hometowns for the Chinese New Year (CNY) celebrations this weekend have been invited to stop at Petronas stations for a coffee break.

“We are anticipating high traffic along the highways during the Chinese New Year holiday. That is why we are inviting motorists to take a break and recharge at our stations,” said Mohd Ibrahimnuddin Mohd Yunus, the managing director and chief executive officer of Petronas Dagangan Berhad.

A total of 121 Petronas stations along highways, trunk roads and high traffic areas nationwide will be participating in the Petronas Coffee Break campaign.

These stations will be distributing 600,000 cups of freshly brewed hot coffee and snacks on 28 to 29 January and 30 to 31 January 2017 from 2pm onwards while stocks last.

Already in its 18th year, the campaign will also reinforce road safety messages through a collaboration with the Road Safety Department.

Motorists will find ‘Seven Road Safety Tips’ at Petronas stations to remind and educate road users to stay safe this upcoming holiday.

In addition, Petronas is collaborating with its partners to bring a more holistic road safety campaign to travelers when they drop by the participating stations. Safety-related services such as 20-point safety inspections on Proton cars
carried out by the Proton team and health checks will be made available at selected locations for free.

“Road safety is a natural concern for us at Petronas. These safety tips will serve as a good reminder and enhance safety and more mindful driving that can prevent accidents and save lives. Ultimately we wish for every person to arrive
at their destinations safe and well,” Ibrahimnuddin said.

The Petronas Coffee Break campaign is complemented by the company’s long-standing commitment as the fuel sponsor to 50 of St. John Ambulance’s emergency response vehicles.

Petronas Coffee Break is also held in collaboration with Nestle Products Sdn Bhd, Munchworld Marketing Sdn Bhd, Suntory Beverages & Food Malaysia Sdn Bhd and Mondelez Malaysia Sales Sdn Bhd.

The free hot coffee and snacks will be provided to motorists while stocks last. For more information on Petronas Coffee Break and the locations of participating Petronas stations, visit
