Idaho high schoolers vie for best safe-driving message

If teens don’t always listen to their parents, maybe they’ll listen to other teens.

High school students across Idaho were invited to create their own videos or memes to illustrate the dangers of distracted driving.

The goal? To raise awareness of the three main types of distracted driving:

  • Manual: Taking your hands off the wheel

  • Visual: Taking your eyes off the road

  • Cognitive: Taking your mind off what you're doing.

While we know news articles and firsthand experiences tell an impactful story, we like the approach of letting teens take the mic and use a little creativity to inspire safe driving.

*Note for parents wondering what in the world a “meme” is – you’d know one if you saw it. Take the image in this post for example (photo credit: uidaho.edu). A meme is typically a funny image with superimposed text that’s shared (and shared, and shared) across social networks.
