Year of the Fix: 2018
Location: Downpatrick, Northern Ireland
Campaign: To stop people using their phones while driving

There have been several fatal road accidents recently that have hit our small community hard.

 

Myself and a group of students want to increase awareness about the dangers of using your phone while driving.

 

Checking messages, answering the phone and changing music are all distractions which take your eyes off the road. These can be fatal distractions.

 

It is not OK to use your phone while driving and I hope the air fresheners we have designed will act as a permanent reminder of this.

The following people helped me with my fix:

 

Rose Magee

Conor Macklin

Niamh Arthurs

Lucien Coole

Meabh Kennedy

 

This project was supported by the Road Safety Trust.
