Our challenge is to shift the acceptability of speeding amongst New Zealander drivers. They have a variety of ‘reasons’ and excuses for their speeding and don’t believe they will be caught or have an accident. This campaign reminds drivers that there are consequences to ignoring the speed limit; whether that be Police enforcement or a potentially fatal crash.
Traditionally, people have viewed safe vehicles as new and expensive but better protection doesn’t have to cost more. There are 4 and 5-star rated cars in most price ranges. We recommend people buy the safest, cleanest and most efficient vehicles in their price range.
Many people in Aotearoa regularly take medication, including prescribed, bought over the counter and traditional remedies, to stay well and function. But did you know that mixing this type of medication with other medication, drugs or alcohol can cause impairment? This campaign shows the harm that mixing substances causes on our roads and the multiplied effect that the mixing of these substances has on a person.
There isn’t just one ‘fix’ that will stop people being killed and seriously injured on our roads. It’s going to take all the individual parts of the road system working together to keep us safe. We all have a part to play - It takes everyone to get to no one. Mā tātou e kore tētahi e hinga.
We have a vision of zero deaths and serious injuries on New Zealand roads. A vision where everyone, whether they’re walking, cycling, driving, motorcycling or taking public transport, can get to where they’re going safely. It might sound impossible, but Aotearoa has a plan to get there. It’s called Road to Zero.
It’s time we stopped paying the road toll. We need to disrupt complacent attitudes about people being killed and seriously injured in road crashes. We have a problem on our roads and it’s not acceptable. This campaign puts the problem into focus and explains we have a plan to address it; it’s called Road to Zero.
Our environments have changed since speed limits were originally set. There has been significant growth and development, and we’re continuing to use different modes of transport. It’s important that we’re setting safe speed limits to keep everyone safe. This campaign aims to increase public awareness and understanding of the fact that some speed limits are no longer fit for purpose and how setting safe speeds plays an important part in keeping everyone safe – no matter how they travel.
A big challenge in the area of speed is to stop speeding drivers from continuing to defend their perceived right to speed. Confident in their driving ability and their belief that nothing untoward is likely to happen, they refuse to make the connection between their own speed and potential harm. By showing our audience that others perceive their driving very differently to them, we hope they’ll start to rethink their behaviour.
Too many people still don’t think it’s a problem to drive after drinking alcohol. This campaign encourages them to recognise that the inconvenience of not having their car in the morning is far better than the potential consequences of drink-driving.
