service announcement claims national award
Produced by the Public Affairs video crew of Dave Tuttle and Mark Hall, the video features a message by Darlene Root whose family survived a violent rollover automobile crash because they were all wearing seat belts. Darlene, her daughter, son-in-law and 2-year-old grandson were on a family trip in August 2003 when the crash occurred.
Daughter Jennie attempting to pass another vehicle on a two-lane road when the steering wheel began to shake. She lost control of the vehicle, which rolled 3-1/2 times before coming to a stop. All occupants (except Darlene, who was trapped in the back seat) walked away with only minor injuries.
The Idaho Office of Traffic and Highway Safety used the video and images of the crumpled auto to promote its Click It, Dont Risk It! safety campaign. The message supports national statistics that point to significantly improved odds of surviving crashes when vehicle occupants use seat belts. The television spots featuring the Root family aired in every TV market in Idaho.
More than 30 states, including Idaho, were represented at the national workshop for public affairs professionals.
