Filming safely is the cornerstone of the campaign at Mixed Messages! If we create additional danger on the road, we are no help at all. Please follow these recommendations in order to assure maximum safety.
Never attempt to manipulate a camera while driving!
If you are driving alone and you want to film, mount your phone or action camera with a suction cup and let it film while you focus on driving the vehicle.
If you have a passenger, let the passenger do the filming.
Follow traffic laws at all times.
Do not “swerve” through traffic or chase after vehicles. You are doing enough just by having a camera ready and participating. You do not have to “catch” every driver. We don’t!
Beware of the driver you are filming. If they are not paying attention to the road or you, you cannot trust them to stay in their lane, maintain a certain speed, or make rational decisions.
