Ever Heard of Wathan Funeral Home?
Share
clear
I had never heard of Wathan Funeral Home until today!  But why would I have?  There are funeral homes around the world but this one has made headlines.  For their marketing strategy, they used this video/billboard to draw attention to their services.
 
 
They are getting their point across around the world with that video.  But here's the real truth:  Wathan Funeral Home doesn't exist.  This was all a planned marketing scheme in Ontario, Canada to change the increasing hazardous pattern of drivers to pay attention while driving on the road.  You can see their details of the promotion here: www.WathanFuneralHome.com.
 
This promotion hasn't been seen without controversy.  Many thought it was unfair to mislead that way.  Many thought it was extremely clever and appropriate to release!  How do you feel?

Are You Driving for LYFT or UBER? Are You Insured Correctly?

Two peer-to-peer trends that are growing in popularity are ride-sharing and personal vehicle sharing, or car-sharing. Most people do not realize that their personal auto insurance policy may not cover them if they were to suffer a loss using either service. Ride-sharing involves a transportation network company (TNC), such as Uber or Lyft, which provides prearranged transportation services for compensation. This is done by using a digital network (app) to connect passengers with drivers using...

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month! Let’s kick it to the curb!

Driver distraction is a leading cause of vehicle accidents. Nearly 80% of vehicle crashes involve driver inattention, according to research conducted by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute. Eating and drinking, talking to a fellow passenger, applying makeup, programming a GPS or navigation system, or simply adjusting the radio all qualify as distracted driving.
