In a bid to improve Haryana's road safety, Maruti Suzuki has presented the police force with 13 new Ertiga MPVs, and 2 Eeco ambulances. The vehicles will be used for patrolling, surveillance, and medical emergencies on highways.
CS Raju, the Executive Director, HR, presented the vehicles to Sandeep Khirwar, the Commissioner of Police, Gurgaon. Of the 13 Ertigas presented, 2 of them will be used by police interceptors.
All 13 Ertigas are custom made for police use and come fitted with beacons, siren, public address system, and body graphics. The two interceptors are equipped with laser based traffic speed video systems, printers, roof-mounted day and night all-weather PTZ cameras, and LED monitor Roof light bars.
The interceptors also come fitted with breathalyzers to check alcohol levels, while the ambulances will take care of getting injured people to hospitals, to ensure medical care is given.
Commenting on the occasion, CS Raju said: "We at Maruti Suzuki are committed to promote Road Safety in the country. Together with Haryana Police, we intend to reduce road accidents in Haryana. By giving these vehicles, we are further extending our support to Haryana Police for making roads safer."
Maruti Suzuki has dominated the Indian car market for a long time, and one of the current best-sellers for the carmaker is the Ignis, pictured in the gallery below.
