Powerful New Anti-Distracted Driving Campaign Launched By Team One USA And FocusDriven

Public urged to create own memorials to support the cause

ITASCA, Ill., March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FocusDriven and Team One USA, a full-service marketing communications agency based in Los Angeles, today launched a national anti-distracted driving campaign, in time for National Distracted Driving Awareness Month, held annually each April. The advertisements consist of compelling visuals of candlelight memorials with shortened text phrases and emoticons, including "OMG," ":-)" and "LOL."

The public will be able to share in the national advertising campaign by creating their own memorials and sharing them via's social channels, including Facebook and Twitter.

"When Team One presented us with the creative concept we knew right away it was something we wanted to be involved with," said Rob Reynolds, Executive Director at FocusDriven. "The artwork sends the message that distracted driving can be lethal. We haven't seen the message conveyed like this in anything that has been done before. These images are a powerful reminder that lives are being lost because of this behavior."

"We are honored to work with a group as dedicated to the cause as FocusDriven, who allowed us the freedom to express ourselves with such visceral images," said Chris Graves, Chief Creative Officer, Team One. "We hope that this powerful message will have a lasting impact on cell-free driving."

In addition to appearances in Seventeen, Car and Driver and Esquire's April editions, the campaign posters can also be found on the FocusDriven website at Through print pieces and social media activations, FocusDriven encourages cell phone victims to share their stories to help advocate for changes in attitudes, beliefs and behaviors around this deadly distraction. 

"We're calling on the public to create similar images and share them with us on Facebook and Twitter," said Reynolds. "We want the public engaged and sharing the message that calls and texts can wait."
