Accident Awareness provides a motivational digital media presentation which encompasses fundamental aspects directly related to adolescents and dangerous driving. The topics included in our presentation are a direct result of extensive research conducted by members of the Accident Awareness team.

The subjects discussed in the show are comprised of the following:

s

Speeding

Young drivers aged 16-24 have the highest rate of motor vehicle crashes

s

Street Racing

Due to new traffic law, an individual found to be going 50km/h over the speed limit is required to pay harsh fines in addition to the impounding of their vehicle

s

Careless/Dangerous Driving

For the past 10 years, motor vehicle related injuries have been the leading cause of injury and death of persons under 25 years of age

s

Distracted Driving

In Ottawa, over the past five years, young drivers aged 16-24 were involved in over 489 motor vehicle collisions due to inattentiveness

s

Pedestrian Mistakes

Transport Canada noted a particularly dramatic rise in 2004 in the pedestrian hospitalization rate from 38% to 50%.

s
