Have you ever been in an unfortunate encounter with a road bully? Did you ever cross paths with rude drivers, who do not have a problem with making offensive gestures on the road? In an effort to cut down on the number of irresponsible drivers on Malaysian roads today, Allianz has recently launched a new app called MyAID. The insurance company is reaching out to all Malaysians via its extensive social media campaign on Facebook and YouTube.
The MyAID movement is short for Malaysians Against Irresponsible Drivers, and was initiated with the purpose of increasing awareness of irresponsible drivers to citizens of Malaysia. With the assistance of Allianz’s proprietary MyAID app, you can now be a part of the movement to highlight and eventually curb poor driving habits among Malaysian drivers. The app turns your phone into a dash cam by recording 30-second video bursts with a simple tap, allowing you to record any irresponsible drivers in action. It then saves your video so you can share it to MyAID’s YouTube page to encourage other users to do the same.
Together with the MyAID app, there is also a series of videos hosted on Allianz’s YouTube page titled “Confessions Of An Irresponsible Malaysian Driver”. These videos were made in conjunction with the MyAID movement, highlighting some of the most problematic and annoying users on Malaysian roads. Those interested can watch the rest of the videos on Allianz’s YouTube page, where viewers can also find videos recorded and submitted by MyAID app users.
Joining the movement from Allianz is fairly simple too: you only need to download the app from the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store to your smartphones. This makes you part of the growing community with one goal in mind – to increase awareness of irresponsible drivers.
