Manitoba Public Insurance, STARS and other emergency services including RCMP, EMS and firefighters partnered to release this video before the Labour Day Long weekend in an effort to reduce serious injuries and deaths.

“Distracted driving is a major cause of motor vehicle collisions in Manitoba,” said STARS Base Director and flight paramedic Grant Therrien. “Hopefully this video will be a strong reminder to motorists to keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel.”

United Driver Training requested STARS and other emergency services partner to produce this sponsor-funded initiative to demonstrate the consequences of distracted driving to teens.
