As the nation continues to experience robust economic growth, there is a concurrent increase in disposable incomes. This shift is leading to a growing demand for secure and cost-effective mobility solutions. While advancements have been made in the realm of road and highway infrastructure as well as vehicle engineering, India's road safety landscape continues to be a cause for substantial concern. The frequency of accidents and loss of lives remains alarmingly high, primarily attributed to reckless driving and widespread disregard for traffic regulations.


Acknowledging the pressing nature of this issue, SIAM's Society for Automotive Fitness & Environment (SAFE) has adopted proactive strategies to tackle this crucial concern. By means of campaigns, workshops, and training initiatives, automobile manufacturers are dedicated to cultivating a sense of conscientious driving behavior. This entails underscoring the significance of seat belt utilization, adherence to traffic regulations, and the avoidance of distractions while driving.


In the past year, a multitude of progressive initiatives has been spearheaded by SAFE with the objective of enhancing awareness about road safety and fostering engagement among various stakeholders in the ecosystem. The noteworthy SAFE Annual Convention of 2022, held in the vibrant state of Odisha, emerged as a pivotal platform where proponents of road safety, experts, stakeholders, and policymakers converged to exchange insights, tactics, and collaborative strategies aimed at cultivating safer road environments.


The inauguration of the Safe Journey campaign during the SAFE Annual Convention 2022 eloquently underscored SAFE's unwavering commitment to road safety. This campaign served as a poignant testament to SAFE's dedication, resonating with the ethos of safeguarding lives on the road.


At the Auto Expo 2023, the Surakshit Safar Pavilion stood as a beacon of SAFE's resolute dedication. Through dynamic interactive displays and impactful awareness initiatives, the pavilion assumed the role of an educational hub, enlightening visitors about the nuances of road safety. This initiative aspired to go beyond dissemination of knowledge, aiming to influence a profound shift in road behavior towards one that is characterized by responsibility and mindfulness.


This year, a memorandum of understanding was inked between SIAM and Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan. This collaborative agreement seeks to inculcate vital road safety awareness among school children, nurturing essential skills and values for prudent road usage. This step exemplifies SAFE's visionary approach of nurturing a safety-conscious culture right from a young age, thereby sowing the seeds for a safer road culture in the future.


With an unyielding focus on transforming the road safety landscape across the nation, SAFE's concerted efforts extend not only to the central government but also to state-level cooperation. In line with this aspiration, this year's annual convention is meticulously being organized in the picturesque state of Assam, standing as a testament to SAFE's inclusive and comprehensive approach to fostering safer roads.


In culmination, SAFE's persistent endeavors are poised to yield a profound impact on road safety awareness, with each initiative representing a crucial stride towards a safer and more responsible road ecosystem for all.


SIAM is proud to announce the upcoming SAFE Annual Convention scheduled for the 26th and 27th of September 2023. This year's convention carries the theme "SAFE Roads, SAFE India: Strategies for Ensuring Safer Transportation on 26th September 2023 and Workshop on Sustainable Mobility Imperatives Around Road Safety & Environment on 27th September 2023 ." These programs promise to be an engaging and dynamic event, designed to foster a comprehensive understanding of the strategies imperative to create a safer and more secure transportation ecosystem.


It brings us immense pleasure to reveal that we have extended a gracious invitation to the Hon’ble Chief Minister of Assam, Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma. We sincerely hope that he will grace the Inaugural Session of the SAFE Annual Convention 2023, lending his invaluable insights and support to this crucial endeavor.


In addition to the distinguished presence of the Chief Minister, the convention will be graced by several luminaries and dignitaries. Experts from various Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) will converge, accompanied by executives who stand as pillars of road safety. Their active participation underscores their commitment to driving forward the discourse on raising awareness about road safety and propelling impactful change.


This convention stands as a beacon of hope and progress, uniting stakeholders and thought leaders in a collaborative mission to fortify road safety. We eagerly anticipate the collective wisdom and shared insights that will undoubtedly emerge from this gathering, as we work together to shape a safer, more responsible road culture for India.


We are delighted to apprise you of an exciting development: a Mobility Exposition is in the works, slated to coincide with the convention on September 26th , 2023. This exposition is poised to be an engaging platform that draws participation from key players in the Automobile Industry, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Component Manufacturers, as well as Technology providers such as IDTR, VLTD, HSRP, ATS, and I&C. Driving Simulators, Medical Experts, and NGOs will also join this event to contribute to its enriching landscape.


27th September 2023, this event will host a technical workshop on Workshop on Sustainable Mobility Imperatives Around Road Safety & Environment, dedicated to exploring sustainable mobility imperatives and initiatives related to road safety and environmental consciousness. These dialogues will be steered in collaboration with state government stakeholders, with district Regional Transport Officers (RTOs) also playing a crucial role.


Furthermore, an integral facet of the event will be the discourse on SIAM's sustainable mobility endeavors, encompassing areas such as biofuels, electrification, and automotive recycling. During these discussions, the unique priorities of the state of Assam will take center stage, encapsulating the distinct considerations and directions for sustainable mobility in the region.


SIAM has thoughtfully included a session titled 'Ease of Doing Business: Vehicle Registration Process, Regulations, HSRP & VLTD', designed to impart a comprehensive understanding of legal nuances and rightful procedures.


This event holds the potential to foster meaningful networking and fruitful collaborations. By convening stakeholders, it aims to collectively shape the trajectory of road safety through technology-driven strategies.


We extend a warm invitation to all those invested in this noble cause to participate actively and contribute to this endeavor that holds the promise of a safer, more responsible road landscape.
