The purpose of these videos
The purpose of these videos is to help inform the public of the thousands of accident victims who have been injured or killed in motor vehicle collisions as a result of distracted driving. The ultimate goal of the scholarship contest is to save future lives through encouraging the videos to go viral and reach as many people as possible. According to Distraction.gov in 2009, 5,474 people were killed in U.S. roadways and an estimated additional 448,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes that were reported to have involved distracted driving.
