Your GOPRO footage needed
In an effort to combat the recent spate of distracted related injuries and fatalities over the summer in my city of Toronto Ontario Canada, my wife has taken to public internet shaming (with the support of the Toronto police service, I might add).
Distracted driving, as all of you know up close and in person, is a major concern for everyone, but especially motorcyclists, cyclist and pedestrians. After showing my wife some footage of a nothing, out on the town to run some errands type ride, where I encountered...and damn near engaged, no less than 6 drivers texting or calling, or READING...
My wife decided, that since getting yelled at, loosing a mirror, or getting threatened doesn't seem to get the point across to these drivers, perhaps having they're silly mugs caught in the act posted to social media (to a rather large following I hope).
I have compiled around 50 clips from myself and other contributors locally, and now I'm asking if you have any footage of an encounter with a distracted driver, I'd love to feature it in the launch video. I can credit you( or not) but the goal of this campaign, is to embarrass some sense into these people, since they're facebook wall seems to be the be-all-end-all for them!
PM me if you're interested in helping out, Thanks guys!
