University of Colorado students are taking aim against distracted driving and pedestrian injuries on campus. Working with the Wardenburg Health Center, CU students produced a video which explores the types of distracted driving they have witnessed, some reasons why people might drive distracted and some simple suggestions to drive less distracted. The video is part of an initiative to raise awareness on the CU campus about distracted driving, and also distracted walking and pedestrian safety.
The Casey Feldman Foundation is working with the CU students and CU students will participate in upcoming EndDD.org distracted driving presentations to Colorado high school students. The CU students are also working in conjunction with the Bacchus network, a leader in college safety programs with funding provided by the Colorado DOT. The events will culminate in a state-wide Colorado Distracted Driving Summit to be held in May of 2013.
