We are supporting the reds...

If you are on social media you will no doubt have come across reference to My Red Thumb last month. The Honest Truth was proud to lend their support to this simple road safety campaign aimed at increasing awareness of using a mobile phone when driving. As a keen supporter of The Honest Truth you will recognise that this campaign directly reflects one of the main THT animals - the Parrot.

Thanks so much to everyone who has been working hard to promote the My Red Thumb road safety campaign. If you follow THT on Twitter (and if you don't - why not?) then you will have seen the plethora of decorated thumbs on display. During the first week of the campaign, launched in Devon the website and YouTube videos received literally thousands of hits. We were amazed at the activity even Edmund King from the AA and Olympic Legend Kris Accabusi got on board!

If you have been sleeping under a rock for the last couple of weeks and don’t know anything about My Red Thumb - now is the time to get involved. Essentially, My Red Thumb is a simple road safety awareness campaign aimed at reducing the number of people using mobile phones whilst driving. The idea comes to us from America and we are pleased to say that we have been able to work in close contact with our colleagues across the pond to launch over here.

My Red Thumb is ongoing and we would encourage all ADI's to get behind us and show your support. Why not get all of your students to paint their thumbnail red (or whatever colour they prefer) so that they get the message and can spread it amongst their peers - cars and phones do not mix! Any thumb makeovers should be photographed and sent to MyRedThumb to be uploaded to the gallery of fame.

Thanks again to all of you for making this such a success - now the rest of you - please get spreading the word!
