Since 2016 there has been a number of fatalities and many drivers are oblivious to the dangers and risks this presents.

Some of those that recognise the dangers of live streaming while driving but continue streaming because they think they are a good driver.

Driving is a complex operation and needs your full concentration all the time. Drivers need their hands on the wheel and their “eyes and mind “on the road too. The loss of one of these vital components, even for a fraction of time, can be the difference between life and death.

#DontStreamAndDrive Day 2016 reached over 20 million people worldwide. #DontStreamAndDrive Day 2017 plans to build on that success and spread the message further and wider.

Road safety is the responsibility of every road user. Together we can make a difference and reduce the number of unnecessary and totally avoidable deaths and serious injuries on our roads.

The #DontStreamAndDrive Day is coming back on March 2nd and we would like your support to help raise awareness of the day to reduce the number of road related deaths and injuries due to streaming.
