No one thinks big of you – the 'Pinkie' Campaign
For years, the NSW Roads and Transport Authority (RTA)  has used shock and fear-based campaigns, which have had inconclusive effectiveness in reducing actual rates of accidents. No one thinks big of you (NOTBOY) breaks the mould. The RTA website eloquently describes the pinkie heuristic as meaning, “slow down and stop acting recklessly”.

China takes the long road to safety
BEIJING // Last year, China�s roads claimed about 68,000 lives, a death toll equivalent to a full Airbus A380 superjumbo crashing every three days. Although the total number of fatalities is startling, road safety campaigners say what is also remarkable is the extent to which the death toll has fallen as car use has increased on the back of economic growth.
