Request for safe driving

  • There is a tendency that the number of accidents in Niigata Regional Head Office in winter is larger than other months.
    Especially in December and January in FY2016, the number of accidents per month is more than three times that of April to November. For this reason, our branch office continually implements traffic safety awareness activities cooperating with related organizations such as the Niigata Prefecture Highway Traffic Police Corps, and calls for safe driving.
  • In the future full winter, we ask for early winter equipment such as exchanging for winter tires.
    The road surface becomes slippery in winter way. In addition to getting enough distance between vehicles, please stop absolutely because "sudden acceleration, sudden steering, sudden braking" is dangerous.
