“At Centerline, the most important messaging we can share with our community is reinforcing safe driving,” says Renée Sweany, Marketing Director for Centerline and project manager for the Drive Safe campaign. “We hope these young drivers will inspire all Virgin Islanders to drive safe.”

The contest solicited videos and graphics focused on eliminating distractions and driving sober. Submissions were very creative, including poetry, driving simulation, cinematic artistry, and a variety of safe driving tips. Centerline will release the winning videos and graphics on Facebook and Instagram over the coming weeks. Additionally, the top two videos will play at Caribbean Cinemas St. Croix and St. Thomas through September 2024.

“Starting with young drivers of the U.S. Virgin Islands will make a big difference in forming overall safe driving habits,” says Daphne O’Neal, VIOHS Director. “With more than 1,000 crashes caused by distracted and impaired driving in the territory in the past year, Centerline is inspiring others to make our roads safer.”

In 2023, the Drive Safe with Centerline campaign launched in partnership with the VIOHS. Keep left, Eliminating Distractions, and Driving Sober are the main themes of the campaign. A library of videos can be viewed in the Drive Safe With Centerline YouTube Playlist.
