I haven’t offered an amazing, eye-opening solution. In this poem I reference the statistics of deaths globally by year from distracted and reckless driving in comparison to today’s Covid-19 pandemic. In this poem I try to express our own responsibility we have as citizens. To help influence those around us to do the same, awareness is crucial. Many important precautions are taken everyday for preventing the spread of Covid-19. If we made the same importance of precautions for distracted and reckless driving frequent deaths and consequences could be prevented. It should be taught school the importance of wearing a seatbelt just as much that wearing a mask is emphasized. By writing this poem I address the importance of this modern issue. I also express how it is our responsibility to learn these safety precautions as citizens. Many of these precautions seem to be common sense. But the statistics go to show how common sense isn’t that common. After completing our own personal responsibility of learning safety, we then need to spread awareness.

My school described the contest as a way to make a creative piece to raise awareness about reckless driving. They said that we could include visual art, so I painted this piece before further discovering that it didn’t quite fit the requirements; however, I thought it was worth sharing. I hope that even though I may not be eligible that my painting can still raise awareness about this topic.

Just like traffic lights direct traffic to stop, slow down, and go, I wanted to use the symbol of the traffic light to tell the driver what to do to practice safe driving. My graphic design picture shows what not to do, to slow down and notice other drivers, and to go encourage others to practice safe driving. This shows the audience not only what to not do, but how to practice safer driving, and encourage others to do the same.

My video consists of a girl and her life story. I demonstrate a girl growing up and going through struggles when she is young and feels vulnerable and unhappy. It is about if she ended up getting into her car and going on a drive when she was extremely unstable and feeling low, that she would end up getting into a fatal car crash. Our video demonstrates what could have happened if she went into her car but what did not actually end up taking place because she made a logical decision.
