In my city, we have many incidents with reckless and distracted driving. Everyday, innocent lives are taken by this kind of driving. I applied for this scholarship because I want to know how can we solve these problems so less lives are taken by these drivers.

If I were to do a song, would I be aloud to use a premade/edited/remixed instrumental for the music?

I'm going to apply to this because I feel like our community lacks responsibility while driving, safety is always important.
