Michelin launches its Best Driver programme in Brazil

29 August 2014

In 2011, Michelin and the FIA signed a partnership agreement which fostered the international Golden Rules campaign as part of the FIA Action for Road Safety. The campaign illustrated the special relationship between driver and vehicle - a combination of pleasure and responsible behaviour. It further outlined the key safety rules - the 10 Golden Rules - that everyone should know.

Building on the relationship with FIA, and with early consultation from GRSP, Michelin in August launched their Best Driver programme in Brazil aimed at educating university students on safer driving behaviour.
