Bosch Pressure Washer + Dirty Building = Road Safety

“Always be careful when you drive”. The message and art featured on the wall were created using Bosch’s high-pressure power washer. In collaboration with Myanmar’s leading contemporary artist Arker Kyaw, Bosch transformed an old building wall on Bayint Naung Road in Yangon’s Mayangone Township into an urban street mural that features this important road safety message.

Making roads safer

As an automotive supplier, Bosch believes that the most substantial impact the automotive industry can make is to produce safer vehicles equipped with modern safety systems. At the same time it is also about helping people to stay safe on the road - no matter whether they are driving, cycling or walking.
To remind people to be considerate we set out to look for a timeworn and blackened building wall, a highly visible space located in a heavily congested and high traffic part of Yangon and used a Bosch high-pressure power washer to “write” a safety message. We were supported by an upcoming, young local graffiti artist to come up with a corresponding artwork and help us “paint” it on the wall.

Creativity that lives within Yangon.

"We aim to work closely with the relevant parties to share knowledge and expertise towards creating a higher level of awareness on the critical need for vehicle and road safety."

Andre De Jong - MANAGING DIRECTOR OF BOSCH MYANMAR, CAMBODIA & LAOS

Technology invented for life

Bosch has been working on technological advancements with the vision of accident-free driving since 1978. The company invented the world's first antilock braking system (ABS) for passenger cars that prevents car wheels from locking during an emergency braking scenario. This innovation allows the driver to maintain steering control and in most situations, shortens the braking distance without skidding. In 1995, Bosch improved the technology by developing the world's first electronic stability program (ESP).

80%

According to studies, ESP & ABS can prevent up to 80 percent of all skidding accidents. This is why more and more countries are requiring new vehicles to be fitted with it as standard equipment.

"As a supplier of mobility solutions, Bosch is dedicated to help increase road safety and make a difference by providing the innovative technologies."

Andre De Jong - managing director for Bosch Myanmar, Cambodia & Laos
