General News Droom sells helmets cheap to popularise 'safe riding'

MUMBAI: At Rs 9 per helmet, road safety never looked more attractive and that’s exactly what Droom has been trying to achieve with its helmet sale over the past four months. The 4th round of the popular campaign again proved India’s pioneering and most successful online automobile transactional marketplace’s ability to strike a chord with the users with its quirky and out-of-the-box ideas. Promoting the oft-repeated but seldom implemented concept of ‘safe riding’, Droom’s campaign has managed to sensitize riders about the important social cause. It has also been a runaway success, with 62,859 orders received till now, while the total number of orders fulfilled being 50, 619.

Road accidents claim a life every four minutes in India. In fact, last year, 410 people died every day in road accidents. Two wheelers are the worst-hit, accounting for 25% of the total road crash deaths. The Rs.9 helmet sale campaign, which has been held regularly each month from October last year barring November, has managed to create awareness regarding road safety by stressing on the importance of helmets and proper protection while driving. The campaign has also managed to generate great word-of-mouth publicity and brand visibility for Droom, and many users have praised the online marketplace for its sustained and beneficial efforts.

While the MRP of each of the helmets stands at Rs.750, customers are able to order the same for Rs.9 by applying a code while ordering on the company’s website. The company has tied up several vendors and helmet manufacturer for this sale and Droom has allowed its branding on all the helmets that bear either Droom or Orange Book Value logos.

Droom CEO Sandeep Aggarwal said, “The Rs.9 helmet sale campaign is very dear to us at Droom and one of our most prized efforts at customer advocacy. Road safety is one of the biggest issues facing our country and we are overwhelmed that our campaign has garnered such positive response."

Droom plans to conduct this sale during the middle of every month with a total targeted sale of 2.5 lakh helmets.
