Speed Awareness Video Education (SAVE) Challenge

Accounting for over a quarter of traffic (27%) fatalities nationally, speeding continues to be one of the most significant factors in motor vehicle in-juries and deaths on our roadways. Communities throughout the nation continue to be impacted by the devastating aftermath of speeding related injuries and deaths.

Unfortunately, speeding related fatalities have increased nearly 9% in the past several years (from 9,283 in 2014 to 10,111 in 2016). Additionally, a significant percentage of drivers involved in speeding related traffic fatalities were between the age of 16 and 21.

The Arlington Heights Police Department is seeking to collaborate with local community high schools to expand current speeding education and awareness initiatives. The ‘Speed Awareness Video Education (SAVE) Challenge’ is a program designed to engage local high school students through the development of a ‘Public Service Announcement’ about the negative impacts of speeding. Entries will be judged by law enforcement, school officials and members of the community. An award will be presented to the students, as well as the home school, producing the winning entry.
