Biking is not a picknick if you‘re sharing the road with a distracted driver. Our animation shows the dangers of texting while driving.

Messaging on his phone, our car driver doesn‘t pay attention to the traffic lights and oversees a pedestrian at a crossing. Distracted by the messages, he drives incautiously and runs into a young woman riding her bike. He calls an ambulance to take care of her injuries. In a parallel world in which the car driver does not text and drive he travels safely around the world. Our message is clear: 

Save a Life. Don‘t Text and Drive!
