Drink Driving

You Deserve It - August 2015

The specific objectives of this campaign were to:

  • Support WA police drink driving enforcement activities by creating the perception that if you drink and drive, you will be caught; and
  • Raise the awareness of the risks associated with drink driving.

  • Strong prompted awareness (77%).
  • Of those who admitted to recently driving near or over blood alcohol limit, 87% had seen the campaign.
  • 95% said the campaign was easy to understand, with 77% saying it was believable.


Safer Vehicles

ESC - July 2013

The Safer Vehicles campaign was launched in October 2012, and there was a heavy burst of media activity from October - December 2012 and then again in February through to the end of May in 2013. It aired exclusively in Regional and Remote WA.

  • Achieved good levels of awareness (77%).
  • For all media channels, awareness of the campaign was higher in Remote areas of WA compared to Regional areas.
  • Comprehension of the ESC campaign was strong, with three in four correctly identifying a key message. The primary message received was that ESC helps drivers to maintain control.
  • After seeing the ESC campaign, nearly three in four say that the next time they go shopping for a vehicle, they will be more likely to purchase one which features Electronic Stability Control.


Seat Belts

Sashes - July 2013

The Sashes seat belt campaign aimed to:
