Guardian Mates uses the power of influence and respect between mates to help drivers tackle the temptation to pick up their mobile while driving. The work coincides with the introduction of stricter laws in Great Britain making virtually any use of a handheld mobile at the wheel illegal.
In the UK, the issue is more prevalent among drivers aged 17-24, with 42% admitting they occasionally make or receive calls on a handheld mobile while driving. This campaign aims to get drivers to confront their own perceptions and behaviour by making mates present in the issue, even when they’re not present in the car.
