In a special press briefing held at the Diamond Residences in Makati, Petron also launched their “Driver’s Prayer” that they are encouraging motorists to pray before taking off in their motor vehicles.

“Yes, this is the first time we have come out with this prayer for our drivers. We want our drivers and other people on the road to be conscious of their surroundings while traversing roads and highways and we believe that a simple prayer will make us contemplate to be safe on the road. Prayers are powerful things,” said Bong Paguia, Petron Marketing Manager.

Petron’s Lakbay Alalay will also be spearheading a road safety campaign for children in cooperation with the AAP and FIA. Ana Neri, Vice President for Marketing of Petron bared she was touched by a video of children crossing roads and getting hurt that she pledged to the FIA that she will help in the dissemination of information to prevent more children getting hurt in road mishaps.

“When I saw the video clip, I was so touched and concerned that I promised the FIA and AAP that I will help in this crusade for children,” Ms. Neri exclaimed.
