Objective: Clearly state the objective of your project.
This year we shifted our focus to the increasing problem of zooming and driving. Due to the pandemic, many students and professionals worked from home and had to attend classes and work meetings online. We identified this problem late last year when we noticed students attending class and driving. In one study, there was an increase of 38% in zooming and driving. This has added to the ongoing problem of distracted driving. We felt since the world has changed, we wanted to inform students, parents, colleagues, and community that this is not a safe practice.
We targeted students, parents, teachers, and community. Anyone that uses video conferencing with school/work is also an intended audience.
