About Shattered:

A car races down the road, recklessly passing traffic. The driver loses control, flipping the vehicle and crashing into a guardrail. The scene then flashes to several high school students enjoying a typical Saturday evening. None realize how their actions that night will have life-altering consequences. These are the opening moments of Shattered, MADD Canada's 2010-2011 School Multi-Media School Assembly Program. This dynamic and powerful program is part of MADD Canada's efforts to educate young people about the risks of impaired driving. Road crashes are the leading cause of death among 15 to 25 year olds, and alcohol is a factor in 45% of those crashes. To preview Shattered, visit www.madd.ca.
