The "Red Thumb Reminder" is described as an old-school solution to a new world problem. While it may sound simple and a little silly, it can work! RTM spoke to Steve Babcock who was inspired by his daughter's technique of tying a piece of yarn on her finger to remember something at school. He began painting his thumbnail red to remind him to put his phone down while driving. Guess what? It's worked. One nail salon owner even offered people a free gel red nail polish on your thumb as a way for her to contribute to this cause. We think nail salon owners everywhere should offer this service for a limited time and see if can continue to push this movement forward.

Check out Evolution Bureau's video. Would you try it? It's worth a shot. #RedThumbReminder
