Presentation: #ridebetter with ‘Angry Al'
The #ridebetter campaign was developed by 2Wheels London in an effort to resonate with young riders in the Capital – and to positively influence their decisions.
The campaign, launched in August 2019, features eight videos designed to encourage riders to use the roads in a manner that gives them the best chance of staying safe and avoid being involved in a collision.
The films, developed in consultation with riders, feature the character ‘Angry Al’, who acts as the ‘devil on your shoulder’ encouraging bad behaviours. They are non-traditional and contain strong language.
The films were shared on social media and cover areas that contribute towards collisions such as speed, observations, overtaking, junctions and road position.
