Traffic crashes are the leading cause of teen injuries and fatalities. Although most young people do not drive under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, marijuana, or other substances, it is important to share the dangers of DUI.
Traffic Safe Communities Network (TSCN) is sponsoring an impaired driving prevention video contest for youth 13-18 years old living in Santa Clara County. To enter, teens can submit 30-60 second videos that will encourage their peers not to drive under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, or other drugs OR get in a car with a driver who is impaired. Click here to download and share video contest flyer with your friends and encourage them to participate.
