Northern Ireland needs to reduce the death rate & get passengers & drivers to buckle up; TV was a major element of the campaign
What was the Challenge / Background of the Campaign?

The challenge was to increase seat belt compliance and thereby reduce the number of injuries and fatalities when cars did collide. Research among the core target audience of adults aged 16-24 revealed that the factors that would make them put on a seatbelt would be the prospect of killing a family member or friend.

What was the Campaign Objective?
Reduce the number of deaths and serious injuries caused by road accidents by getting more drivers and passengers to wear seatbelts. Change attitudes to seatbelt wearing to make it socially unacceptable not to buckle up.
