With the recent mishaps, the timing for such a safety/awareness idea is ever more pressing because such accidents involving cycling on the road is going to happen, no matter we like it or not. Togoparts.com had previously gotten a car decal design done up but didn't make good time printing it. However, given the recent circumstances, this is as good a time to do it.
The idea that many of us are drivers too and that we know people who drive, these windscreen decals with a safety message can be spread on our local roads. Stick it on our cars, pass it to friends and friend's friends and hopefully with enough decals on the road, people will pause and think about what the message is about.
Request for decals and get all you know to spread the word. Share
What Togoparts.com intends to do (Campaign Plan)
1) Distribute up to 900 decals free (1st round) to all who are willing to put up on their vehicles.
2) To get everyone to put up for a cause, a photo gallery (showroom) will be set up for our members (or any other people) to upload the decals stuck on the car as "evidence".
3) We aim at least 300 of such photos to be uploaded to make this awareness campaign a publicly visible and successful one.
4) Create a permanent page feature with regards to cycling safety and how drivers can drive responsibly to minimise if not elminate unfortunate accidents all together.
If you have access to safety material/information with regards to driving and cycling on public roads, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
5) Create a fixed feature and have consistent banner/EDM runs on togoparts.com and other partner web portals and publications to raise awareness.
If you are a media owner or someone who can help in raising awareness on any media platform such as outdoor advertising, magazines, blogs, twitter pages, facebook pages etc, please send an email to email@example.com. We want to work with you.
