Traffic Injury Research Foundation / Toyota Foundation: Brain on Board, 2

Traffic Injury Research Foundation, Toyota Foundation and Acart Communications partnered to launch a safer driving initiative that teaches Canadians how to use their vehicles' advanced safety features more effectively. This is a reaction to research that shows some features are leading to overconfident — rather than safer — driving. To get attention and engage audiences with out-of-home posters, we created visual puzzles that are a mix of rebus images and words. The objective is to draw the viewer's curiosity, then engage them in using their own brains to decipher the headline. This is a mnemonic reminder that some things (like driving) need to be approached more thoughtfully. Read more about the campaign at http://brainonboard.ca
