Personal Injury Lawyers: McDivitt Law
McDivitt Makes A Difference Video PSA Contest
Every spring, McDivitt Law Firm hosts a video public service announcement (PSA) contest that invites high school students in Colorado Springs, Pueblo, and Denver to use their creativity to encourage fellow teens to take responsibility for their actions. This year, the personal injury lawyers of McDivitt Law Firm are asking teens to focus on safe driving and discuss problems such as distracted driving, lack of seatbelt use, and impaired driving. The rules are simple: Create a video PSA that encourages fellow teens to be better drivers. Your topic can focus on one of the following ideas, or can come up with your own. Just be sure your message stays on the topic of safe driving.
A Few Ideas for Your PSA
Interview a police officer, crash victim, or a friend to get a personal take on the topic. Use different perspectives to present your message.
Discuss the Repercussions of Risky Driving
In addition to causing serious injuries and fatalities, risky driving can result in a suspended driver's license, juvenile detention, attorney fees and court costs, and probation.
The Cold, Hard Facts
Sometimes putting things into perspective is the best way to make your point. For instance:
- Nearly 50,000 traffic accidents were attributed to underage impaired drivers.
- Every day, three teens die when they drink alcohol and drive.
- Using a cell phone increases the risk of an accident by four times.
- Drivers reaching for something are nine times more likely to have an accident than drivers who pay attention to the road.
