The Volkswagen Speed Camera Lottery rewards safety-conscious drivers and cracks down on speeders. The idea is simple yet effective; anyone doing the speed limit has their snapshot taken and their name put in a lottery. The lottery is then filled with the tickets from all those pesky speeders.

The campaign demonstrates that great rewards lead to even greater results. During the campaign, the average speed of drivers decreased by 22 percent, making the roads that much safer for drivers and pedestrians alike. The campaign was performed in Stockholm with the Swedish transport authority and proved a great success.

This campaign demonstrates how combining advertising with the greater social good is a great way to gain recognition while improving the lives of many.
