The Nan Effect!
We are so pleased to announce our latest #Roadsafety  film 'The Nan Effect' - "Drive like you would, when you're with your Nan."

Road safety experts and psychologists studying driving behaviours have known about the ‘Nan Effect’ for many years – put simply, we are ALL better drivers when we have elder ‘peer’ relatives in the car with us, but it is an especially positive influence on young-driver behaviours. Unfortunately we can’t make it a legal requirement for Nans to be present on all car journeys, but we hope this video delivers a serious message about poor driving behaviours in an appealing manner…

Brainy Bike Lights - Make Cyclists Appear in the Dark
An exciting new bike light concept could “make a major contribution to cyclist road safety”, according to research by University of Oxford.

The “Brainy Bike Lights” concept was developed by Crawford Hollingworth and comprise of a pair of front (white) and rear (red) lights which are clearly visible from all angles at up to 20 metres distance in daylight or darkness. http://goo.gl/gTUerH

One more thing, if +Birmingham City Council could spend some time looking at the timing of traffic lights, or if they could be made a bit more intelligent (the lights!), then it would prevent traffic build ups at red lights when there is no traffic going the other way or pedestrians crossing.

Horace Helps Pupils Launch Road Safety Animation Competition!

+AARDMAN  have teamed up with the +RAC  and Think! to launch an exciting new childrens animation competition.

Pupils from across the country will be challenged to create short animated films to communicate road safety messages to fellow pupils. The competition is fronted by a new canine road safety mascot named Horace, created by Aardman Animations, most famously known for Wallace and Gromit.

Every primary, junior and secondary school in Great Britain will be encouraged to participate in the competition which is open to pupils aged four to 16 years - as well as clubs, Scouts, Brownies and other groups. First prize in each age category is £1,000 for the winning school and there are three runners-up prizes of an Aardman model-making workshop. The first 10,000 entries will receive a RAC road safety kit.

Don't Ruin This Christmas
A very thought provoking advert by TAC for this Christmas.

Lots of adverts warn of the various dangers of driving which affect you, but what about the people affected by your driving?

This advert by the Transport Accident Commission in Australia, very simply delivers the impact that dangerous driving can have over the festive period on the people that love you.

The ads text says: “It was the lowest monthly road toll in Victoria’s history. But 12 people still lost their lives; 12 families whose Christmases have been wrecked. Please, think about those close to you whenever you get behind the wheel this holiday season. And make sure you’re there for your family on Christmas Day.”
Don’t risk it.
