My Red Thumb Day 2019

National My Red Thumb Day - Tuesday 23rd April 2019

The 6th National MyRedThumb Day will be held on 23rd April 2019. Once again our goal will be to reduce road traffic casualties by encouraging as many people as possible to stop using handheld mobile phones whilst driving. This year's MRT day though is going to have a special theme - watch this space to find out more very soon!

Thanks to the new law change in March 2017 drivers should be more aware than ever of the risks of using mobile phones at the wheel. However, we know the importance of reminding as many people as possible about the penalties and encouraging everyone in the vehicle to take responsibility for road safety. 

Bigger and better 

Last year we had an amazing response with people up and down the country showing their support for our cause. Thanks to the fantastic efforts of everyone involved #MyRedThumb was trending on social media for much of the day. We received communications from all over the country, and even from other parts of the world, from people who are keen to pledge their support to make sure that we send a clear message that mobile phones and driving are not a good combination! Take a look at some of the images we received from around the UK and beyond here
