Hunter High’s “Blue Crew” wants other teens to know about the dangers associated with distracted, aggressive, impaired, and unbuckled driving.
As part of UDOT’s annual Zero Fatalities initiative, the Blue Crew promoted safe driving by encouraging their peers to make a pledge to avoid distractions while behind the wheel. Their creativity and consistency won them $1,000 to be used for driver education and a student-choice cause.
“I love their attitude and passion in helping their friends stay safe,” said Lora Stead of the Zero Fatalities team.
The students also contributed to the campaign by modeling for posters that will be displayed in schools throughout the state.
“We had a hard time finding students that were reliable,” Stead said. “But several Blue Crew students showed up to the shoot on time and with a smile, even when we had to redo one of the posters.”
