Think! teen radio campaign planned for May/June
A fresh burst of Think! teenage pedestrian radio advertising will take place during May and June.
In 2003, some 1398 pedestrians aged 11-16 years were killed or seriously injured on Britain's roads. Indeed, traffic is the biggest cause of accidental deaths among 12-16 year olds.
The campaign reminds teenagers that using a mobile phone or listening to music while crossing the road is distracting - because they cannot hear the traffic and are not concentrating on what they are doing.
The campaign comprises two 30-second commercials on Hit 40 UK, One Nation, Smash Hits and Friday Night Kiss. The ads will run on a week on, week off basis during May and June, commencing 9 May.
The THINK! team is also working on a new campaign to be launched towards the end of August when teenagers are preparing to go back to school.
