CURB THE RAGE
A road safety initiative by David Reynolds
V8 Supercar driver David Reynolds, known as the ‘class clown’ in the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship, has announced he is swapping his larrikin antics for a more serious campaign: Curb The Rage.
The 34-year old has been working behind the scenes with his management company, Push Talent Management, to bring to life the new road safety initiative; a cause which he feels very passionate about.
“Road usage in Australia is at an all-time high and that brings more people on to the roads and therefore increases road rage,” David said.
“In 2002, the Government’s Intergenerational Report forecast our national population would exceed 25 million in 2042. In 2007 that forecast was changed to 2024. We have now almost exceeded that figure in 2019.”
David’s mission is to bring awareness to the issue through Curb The Rage and explore the creation of anti-road rage campaigns aimed at reducing the number of abusive incidents on Australia’s roads.
“I think it’s time we brought awareness to the issue and help the community overcome this important challenge,” David said.
“In conjunction with key industry figures and with the help of corporate partners, I want to use my profile in motorsport to bring awareness to the issue.”
Curb The Rage is set to officially launch to the public on Monday the 4th of November, before the final Virgin Australia Supercars Pirtek Endurance round, the Penrite Oil Sandown 500 which will be held across the 8th to the 10th of November.
Push Talent Management would like to invite companies who might be interested in joining the campaign to get in contact with John Ruggiero on firstname.lastname@example.org or 0414 543 634.
