2016 “No 2 Distracted Driving” Video Contest Winners
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 71% of teens and young people say they have composed/sent SMS messages while driving. Fully 78% say they have read an SMS message while driving. And the University of Michigan Transporation Research Institute says 25% of teen drivers respond to a text message every time they’re behind the wheel.
For the fourth year in a row, Hampton Roads High School students joined with Hall Automotive and Cox Communications in their commitment towards safe driving in the community by creating and submitting videos highlighting the dangers of distracted driving. A panel selected four finalists from all the entries received then visitors to No2DD.com viewed the videos and voted for their favorites.
The results of the 2016 “No 2 Distracted Driving Video Contest” are below. Congratulations to all four winners and to every student and student group who submitted entries.
