MVIL runs PMV competition to promote good driving practices

National, Normal

MOTOR Vehicle Insurance Limited, in its bid to promote good driving practices and driver responsibility, for passenger safety will launch a competition for public motor vehicles (PMV) drivers on Feb 1.
At the end of the competition on Aug 31, 15 lucky drivers will win an all expenses-paid trip to attend this year’s NRL grand final in Sydney.
The competition will be open for PMV driver registration from Feb 1-6 and will commence from March 1 through to Aug 31.
Interested drivers can register at any MVIL Traffic registry office or MVIL agency and will need to complete an entry form and provide their class six licence to be eligible to register in the competition.
The first 5,000 drivers to register will each receive a specially-designed ‘it’s not a game’ player’s shirt as well as football logo stickers, vehicle flag and passenger limit stickers to be fitted to each registering driver’s vehicle.
To be eligible for the draw, drivers must not incur any driving infringement notices during this time.
Drivers caught drink driving, speeding, overloading or driving in a manner dangerous to the public will not receive fines but be removed from the competition by a special task force as well as any driver who fails to stop at any road block set up to monitor and police  PMV drivers.
Taskforce members will each be equipped with breathalisers and speed radar guns and will carry infringement notice books to issue written notice to rule breakers.
All drivers that remain in the competition at the end of August will be placed in the draw to be one of 15 to attend this year’s NRL grand final.
Winners will be flown from destinations within PNG to Port Moresby and depart to Sydney for the grandfinal on Oct 2, and will witness the grand final from premium seats with meals and accommodation provided and travel in Sydney on an air-conditioned coach and stay two nights at a leading Sydney hotel.
