Brand Agency targets three transgressions in its first campaign for the Road Safety Commission

RSC_Distraction3_BLOG.jpgThe Brand Agency has created its first campaign for the Road Safety Commission after being appointed earlier in the year.  

The campaign, which launched yesterday, focuses on Speeding, Distracted Driving and Drink Driving. It is the first time that the Road Safety Commission has combined messages for these three transgressions into one integrated campaign. The strategy is designed to increase awareness and ultimately change dangerous driving behaviour.

Moving away from the traditional scare tactics used when delivering road safety messages, the campaign uses a tone and style designed to make an audience that doesn't think they are doing anything wrong, realise that they actually are.

Running across TV, radio, outdoor, digital, social media and search, The Brand Agency worked in close partnership with Carat, who were responsible for media and campaign strategy.

Nick Bayes, General Manager at The Brand Agency added, "We have been wanting to work with the Road Safety Commission for many years and to now have the opportunity to do so is very exciting. The campaign brings together three very different negative behaviours in an entertaining way, that I believe will not only resonate with the audience but also change their behaviour for the better."
