Being witness to the reality of what happens in a crash — and how vulnerable drivers, passengers, and other road users are — will help foster attitudes about safety that might not otherwise be experienced. The project creates an opportunity for drivers of all ages and skill levels to experience first-hand an example of the tragic outcomes that are possible when drivers are less than totally focused and responsible. It will travel to high school campuses, agricultural fairs, public safety events, and through a thoughtfully crafted presentation will educate and affect its audience.
Currently under construction, the mobile Crash Trailer displays a real crashed car, motorcycle, and bicycle, complete with information about staying safe behind the wheel in Vermont. Dramatic, thought-inspiring, and deeply informational, the Crash Trailer is scheduled to be available to schools and communities in the spring of 2017.
A trailer has been purchased and the crashed car and motorcycle have been donated by the Vermont State Police. The project team are moving into the design phase, illustrating the completed project and planning to electrify it and create the messaging that will accompany it. Fundraising has begun!
