WA’s Road Safety Commissions launches new campaign via The Brand Agency Perth

West Australian authority The Road Safety Commission and The Brand Agency Perth have launched a new campaign reminding Western Australians to make a conscious decision to make their journeys safe.

The latest iteration of the commission’s “Make every journey safe” platform was officially launched by Road Safety Minister, Paul Papalia in December, with the unveiling of a 15 metre-long sculpture at Scarborough Beach depicting a vehicle crashed into the campaign line.

Other assets:

Family Speeding 30”
Family Texting 30”
Family Conditions 30”
Family Drinking 30”
Family Cycling 30”
Friends Tired 30”
Friends School Zone 30”
Friends Checking Phone 30”
Friends Below the Limit 30″
Friends Motorbike 30”

This week, the campaign rolls out a new series of 30 second TVCs, with 5 spots for each of the 2 featured households. The first house belongs to an everyday family; the other, a group of young housemates.

Each 30″ spot joins a respective household as they discuss their plans for the day before leaving to embark on their everyday journey using different modes of transport. These realistic scenes are interrupted by an emotional ‘premonition’ from a concerned and grieving family member or loved one, before snapping back to everyday reality.

Also launching is a 60 second cinema spot combining one of the family spots with one from the share house, to create a dramatic clash between the two worlds.

Dean Hunt, executive creative director at The Brand Agency, said: “No one plans a crash, but how many of us stop to think about what we need to do to avoid one every time we leave the house? This campaign takes a more emotive approach to road safety messaging and has allowed us to go quite deep in terms of performance.”

Road Safety Commissioner, Adrian Warner, commented: “This campaign has the power to grab people’s attention and get this important conversation started. I want people to shift the focus away from what others can do, and start thinking about what they can do.”

Evan Murie, business director at The Brand Agency, added: “‘No One Plans a Crash’ is one of the more emotionally driven campaigns we’ve seen for a while in Western Australia. I’m really excited about what is the beginning of a strong creative platform to run for years ahead and hopefully a reminder to everyone to think about what they can do to make their journey safe before embarking on our roads”.

The campaign continues to roll out this week across TV, BVOD, cinema, audio, OOH, digital and social.
