Second Chance

The idea behind this poster is having an icon flash repeatedly with noise when it detects that the driver is veering off the road in the dashboard of the car. The cone icon would keep making noise and flashing until the driver fixes themselves. This function would be applied to all cars and possibly connect to someone’s phone. It would help with drunk driving, texting while driving, dozing off, or anything else.

Life is Too Valuable

For me, seeing other drivers talking or on their phones makes me worried not only for myself, but for them. A lot of people nowadays don’t know what the consequences of distracted driving are and what things they will miss in life if you get in a car accident and I feel like my poster achieves this point of view.

At the Stoplight

My inspiration for this song was my classmate who died from a reckless driver. I was in denial. I read many different articles to make sure it wasn’t her. Sadly, it was true. The words, “she was almost home,” still haunt me today. She was just one stoplight away from home. The song focuses on the activities of the driver and how they have control over their actions. It also reminds drivers of the aftermath of their deeds if they drive recklessly. Overall, it creates awareness of what not to do while driving. Just put your phone down Don’t even text back Don’t pick up that call Because you might regret that Just look around and see Before you speed Realize it ain’t worth it Cause it makes you vulnerable You see that mother’s crying Cause her child is dying From a reckless driver That could’ve been prevented If they paid attention Just know that your actions Have consequences That will cause aching So be aware of your surroundings Focus ahead and leave your phone on silence Have patience and don’t get angry Remember that you could fix your things Later but not when you’re driving It can wait Don’t let a few seconds Take everything away Make sure you use your brakes Wear your seatbelt Use your rearview mirrors To lookout Keep your hands on the wheel And keep your distance So be safe out there
