Promoting Traffic Safety in Cooperation with the Police
Mazda dealerships work together with local police departments to promote awareness for traffic safety by cleaning convex traffic mirrors, calling for traffic safety, and other activities.
Every spring, Okayama Mazda, working in cooperation with the Okayama prefectural police and regional council to promote traffic safety, participates in the cleaning of road signs and convex traffic mirrors as well as roads and sidewalks near the dealerships.
