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!

It's a good idea. I thought about doing something similar a couple years ago, but abandoned it because I figured I couldn't come up with year-round content quickly enough. Crowdsourcing isn't a bad idea but I fully intended to monetize and didn't want to deal with copyright issues and having to create license agreements all the time.

Nothing an email waiver couldn't resolve.. I'd say go for it. There is enough support behind the initiative to get it off the ground... But again, content is key
