DMV searches for participants in new highway safety campaign

Virginia News

RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) – The Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is looking for Virginians who are willing to share stories for a new highway safety campaign meant to aspire and persuade unsafe drivers to change their bad habits while behind the wheel.

The campaign centers around four brief videos on important highway safety topics including drunk driving prevention, seat belt safety, speeding prevention and distracted driving awareness.

Virginians who have been affected by a crash involving one of these factors and are willing to share their story are being asked to fill out an online form which can be found by clicking here.

“Stories of heartbreak and loss are never easy to share, but many are willing to tell theirs to try
to prevent future tragedies from occurring. We hope that by seeing and hearing how unsafe
drivers so drastically affect other people’s lives, other drivers will be compelled to do the right
thing – buckling up and following a safe speed, and never driving impaired or distracted. Simple,
purposeful actions save lives.”

Richard D. Holcomb, DMV Commissioner

Videos will be shared on social media and online at TZDVA.org – the Commonwealth’s highway safety website as well as throughout a news media campaign and more.

All submissions will be carefully considered for possible participation.
