“Keep Kids Alive, Drive 25 - Ridgewood, NJ”
Students from Ridgewood High School have created a powerful video that effectively demonstrates the importance of driving 25 miles per hour, especially through neighborhood streets. The 1½-minute video opens with three high school students driving in a car. It is a bright sunny day and they are happily singing along to music. Meanwhile, three younger children are standing along the side of the road. They wear signs reminding drivers there is “No Need to Speed” and to “Be Aware! Dive with Care.” The music in the car builds as it nears the location of the small children. At the same time, one of the children steps off the curb and runs into the street. As the car is about to hit the child, the screen goes black and a sign fades saying: “Keep Kids Alive, Drive 25.”
The video is intended to air on Ridgewood’s public access television channel, on closed circuit televisions at the high school, and in the driver education classes. The video has also been posted on YouTube for all to see. It can be viewed at: http://www.
