Hyundai’s #BETHEBETTERGUY Enters Its 5th Edition

Indian roads have not been particularly synonymous with safety in recent years and for being the country that accounts for about 2% of motor vehicles globally, the stat of 11% of road traffic deaths is a pretty big stain on our reputation. This particular issue was noticed by the country’s second-biggest automaker Hyundai in 2016 and they launched a campaign on road safety awareness called the #BETHEBETTERGUY.
