Autostradafacendo/Trip2life is promoting road safety public awareness. The promoters, through a large group of experts, translated the experience of motorways' operation into "driving behaviours" and defined key messages to reach, in a smart and effective way, all kinds of audience. Artists in the team, the use of the cartoon technique made possible some key products targeting young people and children. Products are diffused in motorways, web, schools, etc.
