Bad Thinking: Is his petition a good idea?

Bad Thinking: Is his petition a good idea?

If someone tried to persuade you that driving while on your phone is a good idea would you sign his petition? Not seen the video yet? Click here.

The Great British public certainly weren’t convinced in our undercover film. His suggestion that texting while driving saves time or taking a selfie behind the wheel is perfectly fine, stirred up quite a reaction (and not in a positive way!).

So why do over 40% of people still take a gamble and use their phone while driving?*

It’s time for all of us to take a stand. We’re reminding drivers across Britain to put phones on silent -and just focus on the road.

Show your support - make the Brake pledge

We’re on a mission to make Britain’s roads safer. That’s why we’ve joined forces with Brake, the road safety charity. Together we’re encouraging everyone to make a personal pledge to #DriveSafer - and protect everyone around us.

Make the pledge

The pledge asks you to sign up to six areas that can make a real difference to the safety of our roads: being slow, sober, secure, silent, sharp and sustainable.

So join us in our goal and sign up to the pledge today.
