Phone down. Chin up.

When you take your eyes off the road, your mind goes somewhere else. And when your mind’s not on the road you could be doing anything. Chin up is a campaign developed by young people, for young people. Their aim? To help drivers stay focused on the road by keeping their phones down, and their chins up.
