Campaign: To stop boy racers

In our area, we hear boy racers everywhere, racing in the streets just to prove how 'cool' they are.

 

It does not matter what time of day it is, or how crowded areas are, they still race their cars, thinking it makes them tough.

 

In fact, racing on the road is illegal and stupid. There is one place for racing – the race track.

 

So to stop young men racing on the roads, we made a short advertising campaign to warn people of the impact dangerous driving can have.

 

It became a global success, with screenings in the US and Australia, which culminated in us being invited to screen our Fixers film at the premiere of Universal Picture’s ‘Fast and Furious 4’.

Here is the list of Fixers who helped with this project:
