Impaired driving continues to be a major contributor to fatalities and serious injuries on Canadian roads, particularly for young drivers.
The Department of Highways and Public Works is proud to support a local project that allowed two local high school students to create some powerful anti-drinking and driving messages for their peers.
Skyler Isaac and Marcus Cammidge received assistance from professional filmmakers to write, direct and edit a short film on the consequences of drinking and driving. The films have been released on YouTube and can be viewed and commented on at the following links.
"Bad Friends" - by Skyler Isaac from FH Collins Secondary School.
"I'll be Fine" - by Marcus Cammidge from Porter Creek Secondary School.
