It is a fact that young drivers exhibit specific risk-taking behaviour. They seek competition, enjoy speed, want to give themselves an attractive profile. This is dangerous in road traffic, especially when the pressure of the group is added. In classroom discussions, young people learn how to deal with this pressure and find their own alternative ways out of this dynamic.
Get Some Popcorn's three interactive short films, one from each language region, address the most common causes of accidents among new drivers: Fatigue, Speed and Alcohol. The target audience is students at vocational schools and grammar schools, i.e. current and future new drivers. The stories of the films are fictitious, but based on real accidents: The cause, time, region, people involved and consequences of the accident are all true. On the Campaign website the interactive short films can be played through.
