Story – Reaching In The Backseat

Your Story Matters

Your story can encourage others to be safe on the road. Whether you were the sufferer or an at-fault driver, you can motivate others to be cautious while driving. Every story matters, even if it was only a close call. If you would like to share your story to raise awareness on safe driving habits, please fill out the submission form on this page. 


Please keep these tips in mind when creating and submitting your video:

  1. Video should be between 3-5 minutes long and no larger than 4GB.
  2. Do not read from a script – rather, write a few key points on a piece of paper in front of you and talk naturally around those.
  3. Before recording your video, do a quick test recording for 15 seconds and review it, just to check your video and audio levels are ok.
  4. Choose a venue where there is little to no background noise. If noise is an issue, consider using a lapel mic rather than using an on-board microphone in your camera or webcam.
  5. We will accept HD video recorded with a mobile device, but please keep the following in mind:
    • If using a mobile device to record the video, hold the phone or tablet horizontally (not vertically) to ensure proper playback on all video players.
    • When transferring your footage from your phone to your computer please be sure to use the device cable.
    • Emailing/messaging the video as an attachment will result in loss of quality. Please keep in mind that on most phones the user-facing camera has a much lower resolution than the camera facing away from the user. We recommend you to only use the camera with the highest resolution.
