ADM is proud to recognize our colleagues in Paraguay who initiated the “Live Your Freedom Safely” motorcycle safety program. After witnessing how successful this program was at ADM, our colleagues launched the program throughout Paraguay to increase awareness of the risks involved with riding motorcycles.
The ADM Paraguay team worked with local government officials and police officers to hold safety awareness events, including caravans of motorcyclists wearing proper safety equipment, safety demonstrations and videos. Participants in these events affixed special reflective emblems to their helmets to show their support for motorcycle safety.
“We wanted to take our safety campaign to the streets where we could reach more people with information about the proper training and protective equipment needed for motorcyclists,” said Carlos Ortega, Safety Technician. “After all, roadway safety affects us all.”
ADM applauds the Paraguay team for reaching beyond the silos to spread the word about motorcycle safety.
