Video Contest Seeks Winning Pitch for Transit

Attention aspiring Streetfilm directors: U.S. PIRG has noticed that transit doesn't seem to be on the radar of most pols, so it's enlisting the YouTube generation to help lawmakers see the light. From the U.S. PIRG website:

Are you tired of being stuck in traffic? Shouldn’t we have better options? In the last decade, people went from spending 18 hours per year stuck in rush hour traffic delays to a whopping 38 hours. And as we all know, time spent stuck in traffic is time you never get back.

We want you to create your most persuasive video about why we need more and better public transportation. What’s your vision of a 21st century transportation system? We'll use the winning videos to help decision-makers imagine a better future. Your video will be a critical part of an effort to educate city councils, legislatures across the country, and lawmakers in Washington, D.C.

Videos must be submitted by July 4th. A few are already online -- Clarence, meet your competition.
