Bristol Rugby Proud To Support Aviva’s #DriveSafer Campaign

Bristol Rugby are proud to support Aviva, title sponsor of Premiership Rugby, on their #DriveSafer campaign and help raise awareness of dangerous driving caused by distractions such as mobile phones.

This follows on from Aviva’s successful Safer Driving campaign last year.

Bristol trio Tom Varndell, Jordan Crane and Dan Tuohy have recorded a short film to encourage fans to put their mobile phones away and take that extra care when they are behind the wheel.

Tom Varndell said: “I think Aviva’s new #DriveSafer campaign is a great idea and we’re all proud to support it at the club. Mobile phones play such a big role in our day-to-day lives now, but there’s no excuse to use them when you’re driving.

“The five seconds you spend checking a message could have tragic consequences, not only for you but for other people on the road as well.”

  

Peter Markey, Brand and Marketing Communications Director for Aviva said: “We’re on a mission to make Britain’s roads as safe as possible and we’re proud that Premiership Rugby and all 12 Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs are helping us to make people wake up to the dangers and take that extra care when they are behind the wheel.

“Distractions while driving – particularly the use of mobile phones – is still a huge problem in the UK and we believe there’s no excuse for having to pay for other people’s bad driving.

“For this reason, the Aviva Drive app is free to download and safer drivers save an average of £170 off their Aviva car insurance, so there’s every reason to put your mobile phones away and help make a real difference.”

*The average length of a rugby pitch as defined by World Rugby.

There’s no excuse for using your phone while driving. Aviva, Proud Sponsor of Premiership Rugby, is on a mission to help make Britain’s roads safer. Download the Aviva Drive app to see how safe your driving is. #DriveSafer
