A part of the job that no police officer enjoys is when they must knock on someone’s door to notify them that a loved one has died in a car crash. The Stop the Knock Video Contest, hosted by the Connecticut Transportation Safety Research Center (CTSRC), asks UConn students to submit a 25 second public service announcement encouraging viewers NOT to participate in potentially fatal driving behaviors (texting and driving or drinking and driving). The winner of this video contest will receive a $750.00 prize and may have the opportunity to have their commercial publically aired by the Connecticut Department of Transportation. All videos must be submitted by 11:59pm on April 30th. For more information, please visit: http://s.uconn.edu/ctsrc.
