#mysmallchange facilitates the public sharing of personal pledges relating to one of 10 specific road behaviours, via a web app. The pledge is instantly shared on the pledger’s social media account, creating a peer-to-peer commitment to improve road user behaviour. In the following days, weeks and months, participants receive targeted and timely advice to help maintain their pledge.
