Description of the Project:
Despite years of government scare tactics, inexperience, speed and the ever-increasing distraction of smartphones mean that 1 in 3 young Australian drivers crash within their first year of driving, and 2 die on our roads every week.
It was time to reach out to them in a different way.

Samsung saw that it could actually use its smartphones to begin a new dialogue around road safety and, in the process, turn one of the biggest distractions on the road into a life saving tool.

And so S-Drive was born – a program that encourages and rewards safe driving.
At its heart is an app that monitors driving behaviour, giving out points for every safe kilometre travelled - points that can be redeemed for rewards.

A social component also incentivised people to create Drive Teams with friends who could then win team-only rewards.

S-Drive encouraged youths to actively change their driving for the better.
