Drinking and Driving PSA

posted Mar 10, 2015, 11:27 AM by Lindsay O'Hare

The students in the public relations and TV broadcasting programs at Algonquin College have partnered up to create and promote short public service announcement videos about drinking and driving. Over 1000 Canadians are killed due to impaired driving each year, with over 60,000 sustaining injuries due to impaired driving.

The Ottawa Catholic School Board has access to a large group of 14 to 18 year olds. If they are not properly educated about the risks of drinking and driving at a young age, once they obtain their drivers' licences, there could be serious consequences. 

We are currently engaging in a campaign to encourage young people to take the promise to not drink and drive, and to not get in the car with someone who has been drinking. 


We also encourage students to purchase an I Promise bracelet to wear when they go out, to remind them that they've taken the promise not to drink and drive, which can be purchased here: http://ipromisemom.com/shopnow.php
