One Tear Too Many

The original campaign image created by Hayley Ngaroma Fitzpatrick

The image represents Papatuanuku, our Earth Mother and the one tear signifies one death as too many and encourages us to be mindful of driving on our roads.

The One Tear Too Many Campaign is now a Northland wide road safety education campaign and uses a number of messages under the brand. These include Drive Sober, Slow Down, Seatbelts On & Stay Fresh.
