• #ParkYourPhone on car free Sunday in Brussels

    14 September 2017

    On 17 September FIA Region I will commemorate European Mobility Week with the launch of its latest campaign #ParkYourPhone.

    For the public, there will be flyers, stickers for children, an animated film and badges, highlighting the dangers of using smartphones while in traffic. For fans, photos can be taken with a giant poster of musician Pharrell Williams, campaign ambassador, urging drivers to put away their smartphones. All of this and more will be available on 17 September next to the Touring Club Belgium stand at Rue de la Loi 44, 1040 Brussels 10-17h. In addition to the launch of the #ParkYourPhone campaign, Touring Club Belgium will be offering a bicycle check-up and free personalised reflective vests and a number of other giveaways.

    The campaign is aimed at the increasing number of distracted road users that are using mobile phones as they navigate through traffic. To combat this alarming trend, FIA Region I and Touring Club Belgium are launching the campaign #ParkYourPhone, with the message to stay focused on the road. It will target drivers, pedestrians and cyclists.
