The Abiria Ni Mayai campaign is a safety and skill initiative aimed at promoting a safety-conscious mindset among riders and passengers. Helmet-wearing is a crucial aspect of this drive, highlighting the importance of protective gear in preventing injuries and fatalities on the roads.

Sponsored by Lipalikes, Abiria Ni Mayai, and other entities such as the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA), the campaign strives to reduce the incidence of road accidents nationwide.

Throughout the derby, participants engaged in various training sessions and competitions, designed to test and improve their riding skills and adherence to safety protocols.
