It's My Red Thumb Day on 10th May 2018

My Red Thumb is back for a fifth year to once again spread the message about the risk of drivers being distracted by mobile phones at the wheel. This year we will launch a new film where an emergency Devon Air Ambulance doctor describes a crash that she attended. During the talking head film she describes the devastation left by a driver who lost concentration for a brief moment to use her mobile phone. We would like everyone to support the campaign this year to encourage everyone to think Thumbs Up for Mobiles Down! Wouldn’t it be amazing if on 10th May nobody was involved in a crash caused by someone being distracted by a mobile phone. Please join us on social media and let us know what you are doing this year to spread the word.

We are looking forward to seeing your thumb selfies once again.
