Meet Our Fall 2018 Winner
Motor vehicle accidents occur when an individual or multiple people are injured or killed in an automobile-related accident. Several factors can contribute towards motor vehicle mortality, including, speeding, driving while intoxicated, having a lack of experience, cellphone use while driving, and other forms of distracted driving. In 2015, motor vehicle accidents killed “36,161 Americans”, with “316 of these individuals being from New Mexico.”(NM-IBIS 2015) While there is a lot of focus on alcohol-impaired driving, as it is the leading cause of mortality, there is a lack of emphasis on the dangers of using social media while driving. In order to create and implement an effective public awareness campaign, this intervention must demonstrate efficacy at an individual, social, community, and organizational level. By analyzing this campaign at its respective levels of the socio-ecological model, it can teach its audience the risks behind their social media usage behind the wheel.
